In January, 17011. (ien. Taylor vi-iic-! X'irginia, and spent 
the niglu at Preside lU Madison's-, who had retiieil from Con-

efforts a-.iinsl them were of n<ja\ail; and jjso, as was sup- 
posed, ti. huild .m adilition to tile old-fashione-l two story

Col. Jno. Taylor had written to Mr. Madi>on, reciucsting 
liim to become a candidate for the \':rei:iia Assembly, say- 
ing lie woidd I.>e one, if Mr. M. would also offer. Gen. 
Taylor was the bearer of Mr. Madison's reply agreeing to 
become a candidate-, which he delivered in pcrs(jn. on rea<:h-

well known, and got the famous Virginia resolution of "99"

presented by Col. J(din Taylor, ajid caildl Taylor's resolu- 

(Jen. Taylor says that both of those distinguished men 
were oppose^l to resisting tha C. S. laws by force, their plan 
was by remonstrance and etdightening th.e people to influ-

The cuuiUy uf Gloucester in wliieh \\t live, is (for Aincri- 
cans) cla^sic ground; rendered.! so by events which have trans- 
pired within its borders, the narrative and "true relation " of 
which, Wi,)ul 1 furnisli a vidunic full of interest to our ov/n 
people an(l to every student of \'irginia liistory. 

Mojc than one writer of ron^.ar.ce in books that have 
fully vindicated the capacity and genius of X'irginians fui tl:e 
production of books of tlction have sought our county for 
the theatre and held, upon which to move their characters in 
their portrayal of the liistorical or legendary incidents they 
have commemorated; but Tucker and l^abney and John 
listen Cooke have still left unutiii/ed a rich store for future 
aspirants to literary fame. 

Gloucester is one of the oldest of our counties; estab- 
lished on the authority of Ik-vcrley in 1642. 


At the firr.t settlement of the Colony on the banks of the 
magnit'icent Pawmunkey, now converted into the ICnglisli 
York, resided the great weri..wance Powhatan, chief of many 
tributary tribes. With many seats scattered from the head 
tidal waters of the Powliatan, the Pawmunkey and the 
Rappahannock to the shores of our inland sea of Chesapeake.

Gioi'i-esier, several years 3}.;o.

ever ercelc>i in America; and it w.-.stlere tliat was enacted tlic

kivini; iVcahonuis, a love, alas, wliic!i,if wectedii tlichis'.ori- 
an Anas Tudkili, was never reciprocated. 


The histjry of Bacon's rebellion in 1676 is intimately 
connected v/ilh that of this countv. It was here lie held his 
conveniim, licre resided the Speaker of the II"Use of Bur- 
gesses, Augustine Warner of Warnci' IlaU: it was to Gloucester 
that the Governor. Sir William I'erkly lUd; it was here that 
Bacon, at the house of his friend Mr. Pate, died, and it was here, 
where none know nov., few ever kncv,-, that he wa<^ burieil 


The otiice of County Clerk o; Clork of the Court, in ilie 
early period of the country was one of the most important 
and responsible in the Colony — for there wcic no public 
Clerks' oirices, the records being kept at the private residence 
of the otTicers. The Clerk of Ciloucester C-^uiuy of that lime, 
by his cosmopolitan reputation, reflected much lustre upon 
our County. This gentleman whose otlicial ;;utograph I 
have, ail'i.xed to the deed for part of "Dunham Massie," was 
induced by his inclinations to devote much time t(.) natural 
science; and attracted by the variety and wonderful beauty 
of the flora of our country bestowed most of his spare time 
upon trie study of l)Otany. The result was a volume which 
extended hi> fame n >t only ihroug'i the Col .nies, but through- 
out Kurope and aclucved for l;im the proud distinction of 
being called the "Linnceus of America.'" He was John 


Clayton,''' ani his h-^auliful hu-nc was between the North and 
the I'iankatanl: rivers. r.-^ cor.'iN \ HON rotf. 
The niMU)firy trees we soni-.-timcs see scattered here and 
there couhl tell an intercstinpf siory of a remarkable early 
achievement of people. When these trees were first tr.tns- 
planted fr'^m tlicir native Iial\', thii^ was the principal field for 
the profluctioii of silk in llie Coh.-nies and was then a thriv- 
ing in'^ustry in Cil'^ucestcr, for v/hich handsome bonntic:^ 
were eitc'.blishcJ and paid. It is said, and we need not ques- 
tion its truth, the silken ro';)e of royal purple worn by Charles 
the first at his corcmat'.on uas the production of his loyal 
county C'f Gloucester in his loyal Colony of X'irginia. 

''Concord," on Vork river is distinj^uishcd as tlie birih- 
[dacc of another Son of Gloucester, whose fame has reflected 
hoRour upon his native county — a reputation like that of 
CMayton n':>t con'lned to America. He was the celebrated 
Dr. Purteus,'-' Bi>hop of London. 

{\) John CUyton. son ot John CUyton. Attorney General of \'ir- 
f;ini<i, was bora at Fulham England in 16S5. and died in Gloucester 
Co.. Dec. 13. 1773. He came to Vir;;inia in 1705. was an eminent 
botanist, member of some of the most learned societies of Europe. 
President of i!ie Virginia Society, for promoting useful knowlcd>;e 
1773. and author of "Flora Vir-2[inia." He was for fifty years clerk of 
Gloucester, and at one time h.>.d a. botHnical garden at his estate 
"Windsor" in that county. A letter book is preserved by one of his 
descendants filled with the letters of himself and father which give 
many particulars of their lives, and contain orders for instruments 
and books in various languages A letter now in the Virginia State 
Library describes a visit to "Windsor." and a number of portraits by 
Kneller and others. Ha was brother of Dr Thomas Clayton, whose 
inscription was printed in the last nuniber. See for "Clayton Family"

roy prcdtTossor of a crniiit y l.rf ,ic, hf soiii^hl our borders; 
not because of the disloyalty of our people to the cause of

discomfiture near Xo.folk. He r.-'piircd the i)rotection of 
the insular po?itiv)n of Gwynn's I^I.;Tid, then part of Gloucester, 
where he entrenche 1 and remained until di<Iodc;cd by Gen- 
era! Andrew Lewis. 


In connection with this the beginning- of that war, may 
we not call to mind and proudly boast that the blood of a 
Gloucester woman, Mildred Warner.U' cours'-s through the 
veins of a grandchild, who was called to the command of the 
Continental armies, guided the de.tinios of great strug- 
gle, secured the independence of the Colonies and gained for 
himself the imperishable title of "'r'ather of his Countrv"?

ter of Henry tlie ^ih, the coubin cf Louis the Fourteenth, to

Count de L'.u/un. Vou will wonder what connection this 
can have with the county of Gloucester. The name of Lau- 
zun connected with tlie person of the successor of the hus- 
band of the Princess of France is intimately associated with 
perhaps the nrsf I'liUiant episode in the history of our County. 
In i-Si, Cwl. Ounlas, and Col. Tarlelon, tlie rcnov.ncd 
Cavalry leadri-, a bold, adventurous and skillful soldier, wh.ose 
memoirs are most interesting contributions to tlie litera- 
ture cjf war — with their l.rilish troops occupied the lines of 
Gloucester P. 'int. 

Above them, a point now called "The Hook,'" a name not 
suggestive of its historic associations, was the scene ot a 
memorable engagement that called f irih the admiration of 
Washington expressed in general orders tt' his army on the 
3'^ of October, i7Si,from that hist )ric place, now known as 
Robin Mill, then the Head Quarters of an allied army nutr.ber- 
ing over three thousand five hundred men, a large force fur 
that war — on whose c->mmingled banners shone the new born 
stars of America and the undying belt of stripes. Genl. 
Choiie, the Lieutenant of the Count de Rochambeau, moved 
his forces to Gloucester Point, not to attack the entrench- 
ments of the enemy, but to c!;eck and punish 'he presumption 
of Tarkton. wlio w::h a con>iderable force was levyi ng c< r.tri-

Our Court House is als-o entitled to reco;^nition as a his-

it was the Head O larters of tiie allied forces on this side the 
York. The Slate Militia under Gcnl. Weedon, a capital 
body of men o:liceicd by old veterani of the Coniiuental 
line, witli Mercer, a di uingaislied oftk-^r in command of the 
Horse were encamped there, and these troops were reinforced 
by the flower of the Frencli army, the Legion of Lauzun, tlie 
whole commanded by (General Choi^i'— charged with the re- 
sponsible duty of ch ockiri--. if not preventing, the northward 
march of the British army.

The o'.d residences of Gloucester, ante-rcvolutionary and

WAR ov I Si .>. 

The wa;- iSi^ subjected our county a2;ain to the incur- 
sions of a hostile force. Our seaboard situation rendered us 
liable to maritime incuriioi;, and my father has often told 
how as a boy h.e watched from t!ie poriico at Airville the 
manteuvres of the Criil^'i :lce'. O'lr miliiia was undt:rarms,

The Gloucester IIor>e, a spleadi 1 company of Cavalry, at 
least so I believed from tlie description of its gor- 
ge. jus uniforms and glittering equipaients which was poured 
into my infant ears, long after, by one of its veterans! under 
t!;e commaml of Col. Skaife Whiting was ordered to Hampton, 
when the enemy landed there, and acliieved the glory of 
capturing at least one red coat, wliose exhibition at Head- 
tjuarters marked a day of triumph to the company, the re- 
curring anniversary of which was celebrated by the survivors 
for many years after at Capt. Ro;..;ers' new tavern at Glouces-

was handseimcly ircalcd by his captots, and then st-nt lo the 
head-quarters at Xorf(;lk. 

Some years after t!ie war (^ciil. Scotl was ia London and 
was inviicd to dine wiili a nobIe:nan of hii^li rank. At the 
dinner he was presented t<j a captain in tlie Uriti^h. Navy. 
This orfuer mentioned the circunislance of his ln-ing cap- 
tured when a midslii[)nian by a coip<.raI and jiarty in ihe 
X'irginia waters and remarked upon the astonisliing resem- 
blance which Gcnl. Scott bore to his humble captor, but at 
the same time begged pardon for alluding to it, remarking 
that A-hilst it was impossible in the nature of things that thev 
could be t'.ie same persons \et the resemldance was striking 
and what was almost as remarkable they bore the same name. 
He begged the General on his return to America to ascertain 
the whereabouts of the soldier and convey to him his thanks 
for the generous treatment he had received when a prisoner. 
The General, th-n swelling (as he told me) with patriotic 
emotion, replied. "I am the same man. The Maj<;r General of 
the United States Army now before yt)U was the lance cor- 
poral of the Dinwiddle troop. Such promotion may be im- 
possible lu-re. but in my owti free country of equalitv noth- 
ing is impossible; the highest stations are in the grasp of any 
who have the boldness and the merit to achieve them, and I 
in three years rose from lance corporal to Major General." 


In tiie war which was fougiu in our time between the 
sections. f<jr the preservation of the rights of the States on 
the one s'de, and for the unification of the cnnr.ry on the 
other, the first hostile shot that was fired in \'irg:nia fell 
upon the soil of Gloucester — at the historic Gloucester Point. 
It was the brief engagement between tlie I'nited States gun- 

A ii:\v Tiiixus ABOUT ocn County, 27 

hull "Tiue blooilcil Yankee" and a section of ilic l\ichniond 
Howitzers — and was the p. elude to llie terrible drama of which 
our beloved Conimonncalth became the jirini.ip:d theatre. 
Of the devoiion of our Gloi:cCbter women, tlicir patient en- 
durance of the suMerings iind horrors of wa:, their artive self 
sacrificing co operation in patriotic '"aid of the rebell-on," 
enouLjh can nrvcr be written, and tlie lythe can never be 
told. The h.tynltv to their State, the sacrifices and the superb 
lieroism of the fathers, husbands, sons and l.>rotlurs of those 
women will be feebly commemorated in a few days by a mon- 
ument on whose faces of eniluring granite will be inscribed 
the names of more th;in six ^core who offered tlieir lives upon 
the altars of their country. ^^*

Hcniy, who lor his friciidshi[> to Henry VJI underv\ent. at the hands 
of Riciiard III, severe iniprifonment and was saved Irom starvation 
by a cat which brous^ht him food. The monumental iiiscri^^tion in 
Box'cy Clnirch to the Wiat furniiy states tiiis fact, and so does one of 
the '"Wiat MsS." in possc:^5;on of I ord Ronincy, tiie present repre- 
sentative ot the Wiat family in Kn;iand. The lattc: Says: "He was 
im[nisoned oi'ien; once in a cold and narrow Tower, where he had 
neither bed to lie on, nor ciolhes sufficient to warm hini. nor meat for 
his mouih; he had starved there had not God * * sent ♦ * a cat

would ever make n:'jch of a cat and perhaps you wiil never tmd a ].ict- 
ure of him anywhere, but — like Sir Christopher Hatton with his 
^^A — ^^'^^1 ^ cat beside him." After the usurper Richan! fell on Bos- 
worth field Sir Henry Wiat was raised to the highest honors — Kniijiit 
of the Bath, Knii^ht Banneret, Privy Councillor etc . and was execu-

The first question that arises in tr.icing tliis ; c(li;^rec is 
as to whicli of tlie Robi-rt Tiirockiriiirtons name 1 in i!if last 
generatiwa (if ihc X'isitation of I'^ij was arac^tor <,f ilic 
Tiirockrnonons "f X'ir^inia; but thcr.- can hiruly l.c a doubt, 
from the evidence given below, t)iat. it v/as thi: Kobrii, son 
of Gabriel Throcknuirton of Cllingu.n, and tli \t it was his 
win, which is next copied:

Proved at London 21 June. 1664, 

by Albion Throckmorton, son of 

deceased \' sole c.tecutor. 


It is also Welifwd tliat llie K<jbrrt Throckinorlon, of 
whose will ihr f>>!lo\vii)j; is an ahstrnc t, was ihr son of John 
Tlirocknio: loii. who is naiiK^d in tin- prccfJinif will ; 

Will oi }\ubf:it 'riuockinoi tr-n, -of l'evt<.n I'awa, Co. 
IluniingJun, dated i March, 169S. proved 3 May, 1699, in 
which he leaves Mary his wife land at IHlinpton, with rever- 
sion to liis son Rol>crt — mentions liis clans^hters Susanna, 
Alice and Mary — leaves property to bis eldest ^on, Uronisall 
Throcktrorton, and ^-^500 to his son just born — mentions his 
fcithcr-in-law Thomas Ijionisall, Msq., and his uncle lidward 
Mason-Clives his brotiier Albion Throckmoiton all his j>Un- 
lation and cflects in ("ilouccsler County upon York Kivtr in 
Virginia, and t'j his brother Gabriel Throckmorton his oUier 
plantation and effects in New Kent County, near Rapnahiu- 
nocke Kiver in \'irginia. 

The testator was probably tlie Robert Throckmorton, 
who patented 300 acres in Charles Co.. \'ij'ginia (then includ- 
ing Gloucester) ai "the White Marsh," August 24, 1637 (and 
was himself a head-right), and 650 acres en the west side of 
Nansemond River, in 1644. 

The second doubtful, or rather unproven, point in the 
pedigree is of course as to the paternity of John Throckmor- 
ton, spoken of above; but from him on there is no f\irther 
trouble in tracing the line. 

A descer.dnnt of the Throckmorion family, living in West 
Virginia, has an old Bible, with numerous entries of 
births, marriages and deaths, evidently contemporai y. In 
some of these entries the ink has so faded as to render the 
date illegible; but what remains is of the highest importance 
in tracing the descent of the family. Statements from this, 
and other family Bibles ma le use oi, will be referred to by 
the letters F. B. 

The r.rst entry in old Bible is "J^^'' Throckmorton 
oi Ellington m the County of Huntingdon, Great Britain. 
born . . " married . . . and died . . . (l-^. F^.) He had issue: 

I. Robert, born .... living at lilllngton in 1683 [V. B) 


An ahslracl of \i'.< will lias hern given. His sen. i'tomsall 
TlirockniorK.n, was living al Hcniing Alibotls, Co. llunling- 
tf>n. in i7?o (!•'. 15.) 2. Albion, boin 1672, "about i: years old 
in 16S4" (r. i; ) W'lu'lber li<- was ever in \'ir^inia is uncer- 
tain, though he may have been the Albi(H» 'Ihrex kmorlon, 
who was an early vesiryman <>f Ware parish, Gloucester. 
'Iheic was also a John Throckuiorlon, vestryman of Ware 
in 1672, who cannot bo accounted for. Pcrhapi. he may have 
been the John Throckmorton, of i^Jlini^ton, named in the«!e entry; 3. Gal'ficl. 

3. Ctaekikl TiiROCK.MOR'roN of Ware pari-h. GUtuitster 
Co., Virginia, born 1665, "an;cd 19 in 1684, thtn in \"irf(inia" 
(F. 13.) He m?.rricd in 1690, I'rances Cooke, daughter of 
Mordccai Cooke, of Ware Paiish, Gloucester, (F. V>) ard died 
in January, 1737. His obituary in the Virginia Gazette 
states that he had long been presiding Justice of the County, 
and that ho died iu his 77^'' year (a mistake as to his age). 
Is--uc: 4. Elizabeth, born . . married John Perry, and had a 
daugliter Frances, who married Francis Whiting (F. B); 5. 
A','/r/-/; 6. Mo>\:'e:.:i.

6. John Th:iock morion, of Ware Parish, Glouce>lor Co..

liam Richar.l^on, of Wjre Parish, and \\\. (ii) Elizabeth, 
daughter of John Cooke, of Gl<.>iicesicr (F. B ) According to 
a manuscript left by Mrs. Ann Page, (ncc Dixon) of Glouces- 
ter Co.. he removed for a tirnc to t!ic Western portion of the 
Colony (pritbably to '"Roxton." in the present Jefferson C".): 
but after the dcaili of his first v,-:fe returned to Gloucester. 

On Sept. 5^^^ , 1767, died Ro'.icrt Throckmorton, of "Hail 
Western," Huntingdonshire, (his death is recorded in the Gen- 
tleman's Magazine) and left the larg'jr p^ rti'>n of his estate 
to this John Throckmorton. (An old estate of the Thr..'ck- 
mortons. on Ware River, Gloucester. Va., was named ''Hail 
(or Hael) Wcs'crn," and still bears the n:'.me). The following 
letter, to Robert Thrcckmi-rton. father of John, has been 
kindly copied from the original, by a descendant of the family: 

"London ijtl' Sept., 1767.

Upon receipt of t!i:s intelligence, Jolin Tliiockmoi ton 
went to Knf^'land, aini secured the csti^le. While in that coun- 
try he obtained a conllrmatii-n of his fainily arms. The 
original emblazoning is now in possession of a descendant of 
the family in Texas, and bears, written across the back, the 
follou lug certificate: 

"The arms, ciest S: quarleiings, depicted in this achiev-

Recent correspoi-.dence has a.^ccrtained that there is, at 
the Heralds' CoUcgc, a pedigree tracing tl)e descent of this 
John Throckmorton from tlie Tur-ickinortons of Eilington, 
and that a copy will cost five guin-as It is to be hoped that

Slave Owncis in Princess Anne 
County, Virginia 

[In my January number a list of slave-holder'^ in Princess Anne 
County h.ivmi; more ihim ten slaves was published. The foilovvint 
list comprises all having under ten slaves. It will be seen that in 
this county the lari^'e majority of the hcafls of families owned slaves. 
This by no means represented all the families interested in slave 
property. Many persons preferred to hire slaves, and, besides the 
hirers of slaves, there were many persons who. while not owning 
slaves, were dependent upon that species of property, such as over- 
seers, store-keepers, physicians etc. These last had a more sul>stan- 
tial interest in the slaves than the nominal slaveowners. On the 
whole, slaves were better distributed thai: horses in East Virjjinia. The 
class tti low whites was small. However illiterate, they 'vere never 
dependent on their wealthier neic:hbors. Beverley, Jone*. Smyth, and 
other early writers, say that poverty, the patent >ji servility, "was 
almost unknown in Viri^Mnia. — Editor]

ington records of such a date as that given to Mrs. Th.omas 
Lanier is stroi^.g presumptive proof against the claim that the 
Lanicrs have any Washington blood in th^ir Virginia line. 

Having lately given some special attenti n to this matter. 
I venture the present enort at a solution of this Washington 
— Ball tradition, so long held by the Laniers. This tradition 
is thus stated in the Lanier book, p. 5 — 6 and 78 — S^. 

c. 'Thomas Lanier, of Bordeau. France, went to England, 
thence witli Jolin Washington to this country, where he i.ub- 
sequently married Elizabeth, a daughter of John \Vas!;ington, 
and settled in North Carolina.

On p. :!>4, thf po-t Si Iney L luier adds to ill- tradition thus: 
'In a lett-- {•: -wx \\: . .\ K. L Bryso.i. g- eat-^reat-gratid-

Lanier married a very ii^.tcresting v.uiaau in North Cari.-'lina- 


if I mistake not slie was i\ Mi.-s r>,ill. I ihink she was a sister 
f.f General Gcoriic Wa.'^iiington's moilicr, as my grandmother 
c.'lled Mrs. Washington aunt ' As to tradition Nn. i, it is in 
evidence fioni the Lanier book that Thomas Lamer wa.-; not 
(.-ontemporary with Cd. John Washington. Cul John Wash- 
ington was burn cir )('.^3 i; Lewis Laiiicr, grandson of 
Thomas, who 'came to \'a. with Co\. }o\\n Washington,' was 
born 1707. The Lanier book, p. 7S, states on the authority of 
another branch oi the family that Thomas Lanier came t'j Va. 
from Great Britain somewhere between i69[ and 17 16. On 
p. So, it says that he had a grant of Crown kinds in \'a. i7-;7. 
adjoining «^ne Siiephrr-l Lanier. Other grants to him arc 
noted, given in 1751-17C0, and 1 76.S, all of wliich conlra<iicts 
the assertion that he was contemporary with Col. John 
Wa>hington. who, b. 1633-.}, came here 1677. On p. 77, it also 
claims tliai this Tlii'>mas was a lineal descendant of Sir John 
Lanier of King William's army 1690. This contradictory 
tradition, with a failure to discover any Kli/abeth Washing- 
ion among the children of the emigrant WasliingLon, dis- 
poses of the Lanier-Washington claim. 

As to tradition No. :■, It is very probably true that a 
Lanier did marry the s.i>ter of Mary Washington, and that 
Mrs. Bryson was right in her statement that' her grandmoth- 
er called Mrs. Washington 'iiu/i/.' 

I take it that Lewis Lanier, the grandson, b. 1736, was 
son of Sampson Lanier, b. t//v<r 1712-13, who was the son of 
a Thom.?.s Lanier, b. ci/ai 16S0-90, came to X'irginia c/rtj 
1709-10, married 1712, Eliza Jolmson, the stepdaughter of 
Col. Joseph Ball, Lancaster Co., Va , and the Aa//si>/r>- of 
Mary Ball, the mother of Washington, and that the latter was 
thus the \;-/.7' of Sampson and Lewis Lanier 

As I show in ' Virginia Genealogies' p. 58. and esj-ecial- 
lyin my paper entitled ' ^Liry Washington," published in the 
J/a^azifu- c^/ .If'^r:. rn /f-sti'/y, ]u\y 1893, Col. Joseph Ball had 
only one child by his second wife, who was Nhs. Mary John- 
son, a widow; that child was Mary, the mother of Washing- 
ton. He had no daughter who could correspond with the 
wife of Lewis Lanier, b. 1736. His daughter Lli/abcth (Mrs. 
Carnegie,) died befoic 17 1 1. It is known however that he 
did have a stepdaugiiter. V.W/.jl Johnson, to whom in 17 11 he 
by will devised 100 acres in Lancaster Co., Va. She was the 
daughter of Mri. Mary John-j;o;i, his 2d v.ife, by a former hus- 


band, nnd iluis /i^f^/s:>Ur to Maty Hall. Mary was Iji-ni 1708, 
not »is is pcrsistf.ntly asserted by carelds wrilcir — Nov. 30, 
1706, a year before her parents were nianicd! 

f)f tljc history t»f Kli/a Johnson subsequent to C<->1. Ball's 
death I li.ive ka'iied iiothinci definite. There is not a word of 
evidence that her muther with her children went, to ICngland, 
as is stated by Marian Harlan<J, I Inn. Jno. \V. Uani^-i at the 
monument of Mrs. Wasliington May, 189^, and others. Mary 
Ball was probably never in England, certainly was never 
married there. C-')!. Rail gave his wife a pan of his estate 
during l:er natural life, with stock, slaves, etc.; to iii:> daugh- 
ter Mary, he gave ;ou acres in Richmond Co.; to lili/a John- 
son, ICO acres in Lancai-ter Co. The Lancaster Co. records 
could show w.hat dispoiiiion she made o( tiiis laiul. She was 
probably 15 or iS years old when Col. Ball died, born say 
1695, ami of suitable age to have married Thomas Lanier. 
On no otlser hypothesis can I explain the tradition 
repeated by Mrs. Bryson that her grandmother called Mrs. 
Washington 'aunt,' and the tradition thus accounted for that 
a Lanier married a sister of the motlier of General Washing- 
ton, than this.- i. e; Thomas Lanier b. say 1680-90. came to 
Va. about 1700 to 1710, m. about 1711-12 Hliza or Klizabcth 
Johnson, halfsister to the mothf: of Washington, had 
Sampson Lanier, b. say 1712-13. who had Lanier b. 
1736. Eliza and Lli/abeth arc the same name, and were so 
used in the iSth cer.tury. The close association of Mrs. Lanier 
wiili the Wasliingtons, tiirough the marriage of her haifsi-ster 
Mary, will easily account for the introduction of the name 
Washington into the herein tradition. I will be glad if any 
one can corroborate or disprove the above liypotiiesis." J/o-

bounded p:aisc. The tribute paid to \'iri^i:iia and V'irc;inians by .Mr. 
Conuay awakens .1 strain ot pride for our (;;rand old state. One hears 
the sky-larks of Spotswood in the meloiJious sentences that rin;j from 
Mr. Conway's pen. Tlie silvery voices of the fair ladies tinkle on ev- 
ery pj>^e, and ever and anon the manly forms of the Washinjtons, the 
Carters, the Leuiscs. and the other baroas. rise like S[<lendid dreams

Euj^Iisa language than Mr. Conwriy. Senienc-s. under his marvellous 
pjn, iiieli into rainbovvs or f1 )at into music, till wc seem to live in a 
land of dreanis. 

All thanks to Mr. W. F. II ivc:r>n''yLr. whose careful preservation 
of the in.iriuscrip:s, up .»n which the book is based, has rendered 
eie^ani producion possible. One learns to appeciate such a man, 
when nearly everyljoJy else is c.uelcss of the past, and thinks an old 
record fit for th- moths, tiie dampness or Ure. The careful collector 
of old manuscripts. wh;chsome limes contain keys to a thousand my- 
steri.'S, is necessarily a patriot. In therefore noMcms; a few instances of 
error, I do not wish to 'lO understood as modifying n^y admiration for 
the work. It is no won i-'r ch kX. in a work where there is a pleasure in the 
flickering lights of the old letters, the historic vision is sometimes 
lost in shadoAS. I think Mr. Conway lays too much stress on the po- 
litical importance of the " Barons." But the error is not confined to 
him. The social piuses of Virj^inia life have b;:en often misunder- 
stood. Virginia was the first Colony to have a reprcsenta'.ive body — 
the House of Burc;e;sc3. As shown by Prof. Jameson, of Brown Uni- 
ver.sity. tiie ballot was twice as free in Vir..;ini 1 as in New England, at 
the time of the Revolution. The real authority in the Colony was 
the House of Bui, jesses, freely etecled by the people. The Justices 
in the country held their oiHces during .i,' 'od behavi:n:r. but the whole 
bench was subject to the law, and the test of the Justice was his elec-

THE SKAL or m:kciinia. 


As tlic clinngcs iu i\\c se;il of Virginia liavt- ucver been fully 
traced, tlio f.'llo^-inp pa]>cr should be of interest: 

Under the doublc-hc/ided charter of April 6, 1000, granted 1)y 
King Jamt'S to Sir Thomas Gates and others, two colonics wore 
proN-idcd for — the lirst to be begun at any place on the Xorth 
American coast between 34 and 41 degrees north latitud'^, and to 
be called the "First Colony;" and the second to bo begun at any 
place on the some coast between 3S and 45 degrees, and tu bo 
called the '"Second Colony." There was to be one supreme cuui\cil 
in England for both, consisting of thirteen persons, to be called 
" Our ' Ojuncil of Virginia,'' and to have a seal with the inscription 
about one side Sijilltoyi J2er/is Muijnrr, Britannir^ Fraurii nxd 
JTibertrur^ enclosing the king's portraiture; and about the other 
side the words Pro Concilio Suo Vir(jbii<>', enclosing the king's 
wms. Cuts of this seal may be seen in Neill's Vir<fiaia W'uata, 
Brown's Gt nests of the United States, Vol. I., p. 57, and Xarrtttive 
and Critical Tlistory o/ America, Vol. IV., p. 140. 

In addiiion to the Supreme Council in England, each colony was 
to have a local council, with seals exactly similar to the seal of tho 
Supreme Council, except that the legend " Pro coxciiio suo Vir- 
giyii'X," was substituted, in the case of the lirst colony (at James- 
town), by the words "I'ro Concilio Prira-r ColoniT-, Vin/ini ^," 
and iu tho case of the second, by the words " iVo Coficilio 
Stcund'V Coloni't I'iV^i/uVr," The seal of the local council was 
the seal of the colony, as the councU had tho pnwer to govern and 
order all matters, subject to the Supremo Council or the King. It 
apjKjars that, despite the abolition of the charter in 1G24, the seal 

82 ^VrI.I.l.\M Asr. Mm.v CoM-K-u; Qiakteri-y, 

of tlio olil coiMicil still oontinuod to \>o the emblem of State iu tho 
olupy till t!i<-' surroudtr of Viigiuiu, in lGo2, to the commibsioncrs 
of iho rmliament. Sevcinl iiistftiiccti of tho use of thi^; venerable 
device have passed under my notice. Tho oldest instancps occur 
in tho case of t\vo uri^rinnl p:ilentx iu my possession, badly muti- 
lated, {.'ranted by Sir John Harvey, Governor from 1C29 to ICHo, 
and from lOoG to lO.Vj. One is a grant to ThoTuas Hawkins, 
" son of Thomas Hawkins, of Vir^nnia, deceased," dated August 1 i, 
1G39, ami bearing an assignment to Henry Heyward, witnessed by 
Samuel Snignell and llichard Xicksnu. The other is a grant, dale 
torn oiT, to James Miller, of one hundred acres, "ujrm the great 
Otter dams, at the head of the New Poquoson, in York county, 
I'.fty hcrr^i due for his oun personal adventure, and fifty acres for 
the adventure of his wife, Mary." On the back of the j^atcnt is an 
assignment of Robert Newman (mark) to Christopher Stoakts, 
diited January 1, lOiO, witnessed by Humphrey Hanmer and John 
^Vatsoa (his mark) ; an assignment of Thomas Goddard (mark) to 
Christopher Stoakes, witnessed by Edward IMihill, and dated De- 
cember 14, lG-10; and an assignment, dated October 3, lG-12, by 
Edward Mihill to John Howard. (The early spelling of Howard 
was Heyward, Haywaid, Haward.) 

The vvnliug of tho patents is veiy IJnc, but of wonderful art and 
bcauiy. Tiie papers, v.hich are double sheets, have rt-d wax be- 
tween the leaves in the right Land corner, and on the outside of 
each sheet appear, respectively, the obverse and reverse impres- 
sions of the seal as described in the charter. It is oval, and in si7e 
about two and a half inches by two inches. The example seen by 
Mr. R. A. Brock in the collections of the Virginia Historical S'> 
ciety, dated M:irch -J, IGoS, is undoubtedly the same im}>rcssioi;, 
tho slightly dillering legend being accounted for by the wearmg 
away of several letters.' I have seen in the same place a patent 
gianteii by Sii- M'illiam Berkeley to Richard Kempo for 4,332 
acres in James City county, called " Richueck," dated April 7, 
1G13, M'hich certainly bears tho same seal. In each of these in- 
stances the initial letters flanking tho crown on tho obverse are 
those of King James, "I." "R." The cut here presented was 
made at my suggestion by Bailey, Banks cV: Biddle, of Philadel- 
phia, to whom I furnished a abort account of the Virginia seal, and 
it is the fii-st representation of the first seal of Virginia.

Tbu king's arms, which appear on the seal, are tlie arms com- 
luon to the Sluart kings: Quarterly 1st and 4th, FraiK^o aud 
England, quarterly (three lleurs-de-lis for France, and tliree lions 
passant, guardaut for England): 2d, or, a lion rampant, within a 
double ticssure flory eouuterllory gu, for Scotland; 3rd. az. a hfu-p. 
or, strhiged, az., for Ireland. The arms of France lirst appeared 
Gi the ruyal shield iu the time of Edward III., who assumed the 
t.tle of king of Franco in supix)sed right of his mother, Isabel, 
diughter of Pliihp TV., who became that in^jnarch's sole heiress, 
Ils three sous having died issueless.' 

After the surrender of Virginia to the Parhament, 12th March. 
l(51-'52, tlie old seal, with its royal deuces, was abandoneci. 
Hthorto the patents for land were said by the governor to be 
"given under my hand and the seal of the colony," but un<lcr the 
Conmouwtalth the concluding words wore "given under my hand," 
and the iusti-ument was also attested by the Secretary of State, 
Col A^ illiam Clayborue or Thomas Ludwell. In March. 10.55. the 
Grind Assembly, consisting of the Governor, Council and Bur- 
gese.^, pardoned' "Leift.-Coll. Thos. Swaun, accused and ira- 
pefjched for the death of his servant, one Elizabeth liuck," the or- 
dimry course by petition to the chancellor being impossible, as 
" tlis collony is not as yet settled with such oGicers as belong to 
passing such pardon, and noe publick seale being in the countrey." 

The record of two patents in York county gi-anted after the re- 
storation of Charles II., the one dated 10th October, IGOO, and the 
other 2Cth March, 1(;Gu-'G1, shows that the custom of the Common-

Mrs. Charles ^L Wallace, of Riclimond, Va., has an old laivl

I'irgiiiiti q>i<irtarn—i\\\\i is, Kinjj^ of Oroat liritain, Franco, Irc- 
l:in<l, and Vir^'inia. The trno history sccuis to bo thut tlie Vir- 
ginians, includiug Lfo, wore loyal till the surrender, in 1(j5'2, wlicn 
thoy all becaiuo good Cominoiuvealth inon. Leo, who, iu 1G55, is 
specially represented as friendly to the Parliainent in a contciuiv)- 
i.iry document, may have, like the rest, wanted the ]ving restored 
in latter years, and the restoration of Beikeley to the governorship 
is a good indication of the general sentuneut. But Berkeley took 
ortice subject to the will of the people of Virginia, and, us a matter 
(f fact, he did not proclaim Charles as King till ScpUinber 20, 
IGGO, several mouths after it had been done at London. I believe 
I was the tii-st to discover his proclamation in the York records.' 
It is very probable, however, that the motto Kn dat Virginia 
qnintum, though not new, was incorporated in the new seal, in 
p:irt as a recognition of Virginia's qnalitled loyalty.' 

The tlrst connection of the sentiment with Virginia was aTi early 
one. Spencer dedicated his "Fairy Queen" to Elizabeili, "Queen 
of England, France, Ireland, and Virginia." In the inscription 
accompanying an admirably engraved portrait of the "Virgin 
Queen," by llcnricus Jlondius Hague Consil ; Cum privilrgio 
lllust. I). D. Ord. Gcneralium, 1G3'2, belonging to the Virginia 
Historical Society, she is entitled, iScrenissiina ac JWentissima 
/'rincij'S J^lizabct D. G. Anglia, Francir, Hibernir^ ct Mrgini^e 
J\egina Fidci Chriatiaw.p. Propugnatrix Acerrima. After James 
of Scotland succeeded to the throne, Virginia could be, in compli- 
ment, called a tifth kingdom. — {Quiiition regnujn.) 

In IGIO the London company, which had hitherto bad no seal, 
adoi»ted a "cote," which has been often confounded with the pro- 
per seal of the colony itself. As it appears in Smit/ts Jlistonj, 
editions of 1G24 and 1G32, the escutcheon is quartered with the 
arms of the Stuarts, crested by ii maiden queen with flowing hair 
and eastern cro^m, having as supporters two men in armor, beavers 
open, helmets ornamented v.-ith three ostrich feathers, each holding 
a lance; and in the exergon the words En dat Virginia quintum.

Indian kneels to a king instead of to a queen in the obverse, and 
the arms ' of George III., ^vhich were also those of George I. and 
George II., ai-e substituted for those of Queen Anne in the reverse. 
I have also in my possession a specimen of the great seal of the 
Island of Barbadoes, during the reign of George III., which is 
very similar; and Mr. Brock, who has also examples, says that the 
use of the great seal appears to have been common to all the colo- 
nics from the time of Queen Anne. 

The Revolution was, in Virginia,' a revolution not only in govern- 

"llie arms of George III. were: quarterly, 1st, Eud-'ind impaling Scotland ; 
2nd, Franco; 3rd, Irclriud; Ith. gu. two lions pa.iB. guard, in pale or, for

' The iuiependent life of the Virginians — of even the poorest— madfl erery 
one equal. It can be demonstrated that the Kepublicanism of Virginia, even in 
early Colonial diys, was perhaps greater than that prevailing in any other colony. 
Aristocracy was a mere skim. It is only in this way that one can explain the 
absence of Tories, and why Virginia became the seat of the Jeflersonian Repub- 
lican party. After the Revolution, mo't of the other colouiea still clung to the 
old ways of thou-ht. an 1 even the seal of tho Unite.! States "was e^t.iblished

other of the thirteen States, raodelled lierself ui^on th-i mistress of 
the claasio world. Heraldry, the history of ))edij.a-oe.s, fell into 
utter disrepute, and individual ment was the solitary test. TLo 
adojition of a seal for the Conimonweallh was the lust act of tho 
Convention of 177G. The committee ajipointcd to prepare a seal 
consisted of Ivichard Henry Loo, wlio was, however, not in the Con- 
vention, George ^rason, Robert Carter Nicholas, and George 
"Wytho. In Girardin's continuation of Burk's " J/istori/ of Yir- 
ij:/ii<(," it is said that Wythe pro})oscd tlie device adopted by the 
Convention; and, as Girardin wrote under the supervision of Mr. 
Jertersou, who was keenly alive to all such matters, tlicre can be nt> 
reason to doubt tho fact. George "\\'ytlie and John Pago were ap- 
pointed to superintend the engraving of the seal. In the absence 
of Lee, Mason, as next on the committee, had reported the seal to 
the Convention, but Wythe was entrusted with its execution, and 
must have jjcnuod the words that doseribo the seal, which have 
been admired for clearness and precision.' "Virius. the genius 
of the Commonwealth, dressed like an Avia-on, resting on

a scourge in his right. In the excrgou the word Vir.'iiNiA over tlio

In October, 1770, the General Assembly authorized the Gover- 
nor, with advice of council, to issue commissions, under his signa- 
ture, until the seal of the Commonwealth should be pro\-ided.» 

On April 9, 1778, "William Lee was appointed' Virginia's agent

a gi-eat seal for the Ci>mmonwo;dth, and to jirccuro llie same to be

Pans, under the supervisiLHi of ^Villinu\ and Dr. Arthur Lee, and 
WHS delivered to Dr. I>eo on or before SoptexuVx-r 4, 1770.' 

According to the ])rcamblc of the act approved March 27, 187.1, the origiiial dies of the great ajid lessor seals were in ex- 
istence down to the evacuation of liichmurd in 1805.' but were 
then "stolen or mislaid." Governor Pierpont, in ISGG, caused a 
new seal to be engraved, similar in every respect to the old, except 
that it contained the words, "'Liberty aud Union," which said 
words were added to the seal without any authority of law. In 
ISGG an old seal ^ was returned t<» tiio ou^tidv of the Secretary of 

' Heniuj^'s Str.ts., Vol. X. Tlie limine of Virtas, which, according to 
classic tho-ight, is siguiticant of uiajcsty iu repose, is curiously distortcil in the 
impressioiis I have seeu of this seal. H. r houil is bent downward, her arm 
half-way e'stended, and her right hnud grasps the sword as if about to strike 
the tjrant writhiug below.

'Col. Sherwin McKae states, however, that George Wythe Munford, so 
long and so fuvorably known as Secretary of the Commonwealth, tcstilied that 
the original great seal was in use until the year ISuO, when, being worn out, 
it was substituted by a new seal, ex ictly similar. But 1 have found no act of 
the Legiilatnre making a new seal at this time.

It is claimed by Co\. Shcrwin ^IcFiae that no other American 
State has a seal equal to that of Virginia in classic beauty and 
approjniateness. "The seal of a State," he observes, "is not a 
bauble, but an important and necessary clement of government: 
indeed, the Couvcution of 1776 was so impressed with this truth 
thai the seal was made a specific constitutional provision." 

The following entries are from ofHcial sources:

and order? the old seal to bo used until further orders. Ancient Records, Vir- 
gi/d'i HistoiHcal Soc'tti/.

Sir Horace Walpulo, in liis ''Anecdotes of ]'aintiu.^," says: 
" WilUam Tfhnan was boru at West Larington in "W'ilUliive, where 
he had an estate; was comptroller of the works in the rcigu of 
King "WiDiam lie was an architect employed in considera- 
ble works. In 1G71 he built Thoresby House in Xottingliain.shire, 
burnt a few years ago; Dryham House in Gloucestershire, in 
IGOS, SwallowliL-ld in Jicrks (Diary of Henry, Earl of Clarendon, 
for whom it was built), and Chatsv.orth; the elegance and light- 
ness of the latter fru)it do great honor to the artist — the other 
sides are equally bt-autiful. The flight of steps by which you 
ascend from the h-dl to the ajiartments was thought noble enough 
by Kent to bo borrowed for Holkham. His son, John Talman, 
resided much in Italy ; made a large collection of prints and draw- 
ings, particularly ol churL-hes and altars, many of whirh were d^-ne 

l)y himself A few of his drawings are in the library of the 

Antiquarian Society." 

The Parish Begister, of West Lariugton, Wiltshire, shows that 
""William Talman, y' son of Christopher Talmr.n and Joanna, his 
wife, was bap' Apl 5, 1063." The rector of West Lanngton writes 
that, owing to laxity in religious matters at the time, ht; thinks 
AVilliam. the architect, v/as about thirteen years old when he was 
bapti/:ed. Ho bought Fehaingham maiior, otherwise Fulmingham 
Hall, ab.iut ITnO, and in 1711 there is a petition of his to the Lord 
High Treasurer, praying jKrmission to surrender his jiatent as 
Queen's waiter in her I\Iajesty's cust'tms, to his brother-in-law, 
Jau\es Tate, •' who was fully quahlied." This entry is minuted

am no elraftsman. It is supposcel the Talmans came over with 
^Villiara the Conqueror. (Tho shield of the family coat-of.irms is 
Norman, anel the device on it inelicates that the bearer was a 
crusader.)" The recorels of Norfolk county, Knglanel, state that 
•'John Talmau, of Grimstone parish in Norfolk, conveyed a pan^el 
of lanel for charity by deetl in 1391.'' The name :dso occurs in 
documeuts conveying sales of land in the ■47th and ISth of Ed- 
ward III., that is, in 1373, also in the 0th of Richard II., that is, 
in loSo, in Grimeston and aeljoining parishes.

"By letters uu boai'd tho 'Jlcchrai/' in the East Inelies. we

■• TiBB,— The firit of this family in Virginia was Humphrey Tabb, who 
appears from the Land-Books to ha/e settled in Elizabeth City county about 
1037, and was a justice of that cour.ty iu 1G52. In 1CG2 there is a grant to 
Thori. Tabb, son and heir of Humphrey Tabb, deceased. From these de- 
scended the families of the name iu Elizabeth City, York, Gloucester, Mathews, 
Amelia, Norfolk, ilecklenburg, etc. Among the prominent representatives of 
the name before and during tlio Revolution v.cre Thos. Tabb, Sheriff of ElL-.u- 
bcth City, 170S and 1709; Thos. Tabb, Sheriff of Amelia, 17-il. and many 
years Burgess, who died Nov. 27, 17o0; John Tabb, Burgers for Amelia from 
about 1753 to 1774, member of tho Conveutiou of 1774, and of tho Colom:.! 
Committee of Safet J', 177o-'6; John Tabb, 15urges3 for Elizabeth City, 17l?>-'oS; 
and Augustine Tabb, captain in the State line during tho lievolution. 

Todd.— Several of the name appear early in tho se^enteelith century. 
Kobert Todd is mentioned in the York records in 16-1'2, and bought land in 
Gloucester in ICol. In ICOG there is a grant of Ia:id in Gloucester to Wm. 
Todd, "son and Leir of Bobert Todd, deceased," Ibos. Todd patented laud 
in Elizabeth City in 1C47, and in Gloticestcr in 1GG4. Branches of the family 
were long resident in Gloucester and in lung and Queen. The most prominent 
man of the name was Thos. Tod 1, of Kentucky, Justice of the United States 
Supreme Court, v.ho was born in King and Queen county, Va. The History 
of Baltimore County, Md., states thi'.t a Mi-'.jor Thuir^.-is Todd came from Vir- 
ginia, patented land at North Point in ICGl, and left a Th.omai.

Bristol, England, had been accustomed to order the transportation 
of criminals to the American plantations and to sell them by way 
of trade, such idderman or justice taking one in regular rotation. 
As legal Convicts became scarce, they took measures to keep up the 
supply by threatening those accused before them of pclty oll'cnce.s, 
m:'ny of whom were entirely innocent, with hanging, an<l ol'dcera 
were in attendance who would advise the ignorant creatures to ask 
for transportation as the only itlternative to save life, and m general 
the advice was followed. Nor was this nefarious practice contincd

of later date than the book, and as Thomas Frayser (who mar-

Mr. Conw.w .\ni> the Ta.MimoN. — (See 
Historical Notes last Quarterh/.') — Any hypothesis of !Mr. Hay- 
den carries such weight that one hesitates to question it, even at his 
desire. It is a satiofactiou to see that he has turiied his attention 
to the most important problem in Virginia genealog^- remaining un- 
solved — Who and whence was Z^Iary Johnson, widow, mother of 
Mar}- Washington ? IMr. Hayden realizes, no doubt, that where 
family legends of exidted relationship are concerned, there may 
be much smoke with but little tire, or even none (a great name 
patriotically given a child often gives rise to such ), but he thinks there 
may be a si»nrk at the centre of the Lanier-Washington m}th. 
For e\-idently I think the stories of Thomas Lanier's marriage to 
Klizabeth, an imaginary daughter of Col. John Washington, and 
Lewis Lanier's marriage to " ^Miss Ball," an iiuagin.aiy sister of 
Mai-y Washington, are variants of one myth. It would be inter- 
esting to know whether Sidney Lanier himself heard his grand- 
mother call Mary Washington "aunt," or whether it was a tradi- 
tion that she did so, gi'owing out of his " !Miss li.dl ' beUef. How-

There Avas a raco of \\':isliii)^'lons in Vir;,'iiiin conteiiiiKiniry with 
the (iiinonil's nnccstors in ^^'oslulOl•c•lau<l, nmong whose dcscrnd- 
anls the trndition prevails that they nro iix,\u the Bainc fumily. 
This is certainly not the case. These Siury A\':ishingtous, one uf 
whom is a worthy Coiif^res^maii from Tenues.seo, have fepread 
through llu) country more than the other faiaily, and one of tlicii- 
Elizabeths may have marritd a Lanier in Nurtli Carolina, canying 
into that family the belief in her relatiou.ship to the General. 
This is more conjecture, but it ajipears to me surrounded with 
fewer dilheulties than Mr. liaydeu's theory. In }>lr. ilaydcn's 
'Virginia Genealogies,' tliere is a letter of James Ball, of Bewdly, 
written soon after 3Iary Washington's death, reporting his etVorts 
to discover somelhing about her mother Mary (Johnson) Ball. 
All of his in(]uiries availed only to show that "she was an English 
woman." His intiiiirics were evidently unaided by any of Mary 
Johnson's own family. There is no hint of the existence of any 
connection of liers in Virginia, or elsewhere, apait from the Ball 
and AVasliington families. Surely, if her daughter Eliza liad mar- 
ried in the North Cai-olina, and had descendaits there, James Ball 
must have discovtred the fact while engaged in tlie investigation. 
At that moment, when the name of ^iary Washington was on 
every tongue, the Lanier relatioiiship must surely have been made 
known by that family or others, had it been then dreamed of. It 
would be interesting to Ln-jw the date of the first letter in which 
this Ball relationship is suggested. About sixty years ago, or just 
filter M;-ry \A'ashington's monument at Fredericksbiug was ded- 
icated with an impressive oration by President Jackson, some of 
the IMonlagu family claimed relationship to her, and tin- LaniL-r 
legend may have started about tlie same time. (Mr. Haydeu, in 
liis ' Vu'gLnia Genealogies,' favored the story that the widow Mary 
Johnson was a Montagu, on the ground that General Washington 
sometimes used the grituu as a crest instead of the Washingtr.n 
raven ; but the gritUn is cai-vcdon the tomb of Katharine, daughter 
of Islajor John Washington, at Pianketauk). Were there anything

[I think ^Ir. Conway's suggestion ab(.>ut the intcnnarriage of the 
^Yashington family, of SuiTy, with the Laniers, of X^ath Carolina, 
is borne out by the wills iu the counties on the Southside. T have 
not just now tlic data to show what connections took place. liut 
?tfr. Conway is certainly wrong about the tombs at Pii-nkctank, 
and lie is also \ATong about them m his Barons, etc., l^agc -IS. I 
have been to "ilighgate," and have my own drawings of arms and 
crests, and the drawings of two other persons; and they agree. 
The arms on the tonib of Elizabeth {not Katharine), the daughter 
of IMajor John ^Vasuingtou, ai'e the Washington arms surmounted 
by the regular ^Yashington crest : Out of a ducal coronet, or, a raven, 
wings eudorstd ppr. The arms on the tomb of Katharine "\\'ash- 
ingto, wife of I\Iajor John "Washington, are: On a chevron three 
trefoils between three wolf's heads; and the crest is a wolf's 
head. These last doubtless stand for ^Mliting• — Katharine bemg 
the daughter of Col. Henry Whiting. —Editop..! 

Pr.E^TON- — Tyle?.. — T had heard the tradition that twu sisters of 
John Tyler, father of Judge John Tyler, married two professors of 
William and Mary College, and that the Visiters had taken the 
jtrofessors severely to task for infrii^.ging the Uionastic rules of 
the institution, which forbade marriage. One sister was satisfac- 
torily ideuiilicd as l^dith Tyler, who married Professor Thomas 
Eobuison, but for some time the other marriage was not cleared 
up. iVrry's '• Iliotorioid Collections" seemed to point to Eev.

Sf_vl ok Virginia.- "I was iu Annapolis City yesterday, aiid 
came across what I think may be of interest to you and others who 
are collecting material for Virginia history. 

"In overlooking certain wills, I found a copy of a certificate of 
the Governor of your colony, dated November IG, 173G, transmit- 
ting the depositions of Charles Biu-gess and other parties, taken in 
Virginia to a will respecting property in ^laryland. 

"This certificate was under the seal of the colony of Virginia, and 
signed by WilUam Gooch, his majesty's lieutenant-goveraor and 
commandci -in-chief of that colony, and ajjpcai-s as fresh, neat, and 
distinct as it it was copied but a few years ago. 

"As I urn not ver.-od in the history of the seal of your State, I 
do not know what ch;iuges mav have been made iu the same 

NC'TtS ANJ> (JlTKlI S. Ill 

tlDi-ijit^ your coloiiinl c\is(onco, but liopc Hint tliis fnct Tiiny prove 
uf vnluo to yon in tlie work you are so well brin^'inj^ out in your 
(^xuirtirly." — If. 11. d'ohlsborouffh, Iiii/(lnto7'C. J\fil. 

Since tlio leading article, entitled "The Seal of Vir;.Mnia," was 
put in tyi>c. the editor lias had access to new lii^^'lit. In the clerk's 
c'fllce of iS'orfolk county there are numeious R])eciinenr, of the 
croicn-shaj>cJ seal referred lo in the article. These show that this 
seal was only the authorized seal abreviatod. The intention was 
to save by clippin[^ away all save the crown. r>ut the clipping 
beinf^ done by hand, the amount of wax left varied in each case; 
and in some of the specimens words and letters of the "hoiii soit 
qui nial y ]>ense" under the crown and of the title of the kin;;; in 
the circumference can 1)C made out. 

In the clerk's ottlce in XorfolJ: city is a veiy interesting' example 
of the full wax impression of the seal, as used during the reign of 
George II., which, with the change of the Icing's nnnie, is similar 
in all respects to the ctit presented of tlie seal during the reign of 
King George III. — [EniTon.]

and is very hijdi over a cushion, dressed -with strings of pearls. 
There is also au ivory miniature of Elizabeth Fitzhugh Conway as

"Genend Fitzhugh is very anxious to obtain the portrait of 
Gecnge Fitzhugh. if one is extant. Can any reader of the Qr\R- 
TF.Ri.y assist him in his search ? Is Mr. Thomas's portrait of Col. 
William Fitzhugh, the immigrant, the ongiual, or is the original 
the one owned by General Charles Fitzhugh ? Or if both of theso 
are copies, v, here is the original portrait ?" — JCotc Jlason Iloirluwl 

Thkockmoktox. — "I lind in your issue for July that you have made 
two mistakes, both of which should be corrected. First, ou pa^re 
50, in the letter from Robert Caiy & Co. to Major Hubert Thi-ock- 
morton, you have omitted the following paragraph, beginning nt the 
bottom of page 50. The letter should read : ' Gloucester Countv in 
Virginia anil to his Heirs and assigns forever and had appointed tb.e 
above I Bailey his Trustee and Ex'. Mr Bailey desired we would 
send him an answer, which we did. and as he purposes writing him- 
self shall as soon as we receive it order it to be Immediately 
forw.ivded. We presume IVIr John Throckmorton to be your 
Eldest son." From here on you have quoted the letter correctly. 
The other mistake is in the wording of the certificate, and consi.sts 
in the in.sertiou of the word 'or' in place of 'etc' The certilicatc 
ou the back of the coat-of-urnis should read; 'The arms, crest.

Stk.^chey F.\.mii.y (See Quarterly, July, 1893. for SUtrc/ni/). — In 
the JfkinticMunthhi for :\rarch. ISUH, is an article entitled "The 
Old Hall and the Portraits," by Sir Kdward Strachey, Bart. Tlie 
"Old Hair' is Sutton Court, the ancient seat of the Strachey 
family. Tlie article is in the form of a dialog^ue between " Foster"' 
and •• Squire," who represents Sir Eelwarel Strachey himself. 

After a statement that the "William Strachey, who came to Vir- 
ginia, was the ;jraudfather of John Strachey, a friend of Locke. 
" Fo.'iftr " asks. " lUd you keep u]) your connection with Virginia ? " 
"S'jnire:" "Yes. Two migrations are recoreleel in the family 
pedigree. And though the male line ended, I still correspond 
with a worthy representative through the female line. This gen- 
tleman opened a eonauunication with me after the war of 1801- '05, 
in the troubles of which he had lost his family pedigree, and asked 
me to help hira t-i su}^ply its place: anel in token of his claim ho 
sent me photogi-aphs of the pictmxs of several of our exmimon an- 
cestors, of which the counterparts are now hanging before you."' 

In the Hakluyt Society edition of "William Strachey 's "Vir- 
ginia Britannia," the editor st:ites (jx i), that in the ]>odigTee of the 
Stracheys of Sutton Covu't there is mention of a W. Strachey, of

This -^ork is a doliu-htful contrast to the usual made-to-order histories 
inflicted upon the country. Prof. Fiskc is a prodi';r>- of k-aruin!,' on all sub- 
jects, and a'] of his works are pleasant reading. One feels that he is in the 
hiinds of a true historian when reading Dr. Fiske. One thing can be truly 
said of him, that every Southern man can read his works without that outra^je 
of feeling to v.hich he is subject in the case of nearly every other Xorthern 
writer, who, uniting igiicrauce of the South with the haughtiness and ferocity 
cf dominaiion, are continually olTending the facts of history and the sympa- 
thies of their Southern readers. Dr. Fiskc's devotion to his native New Eng- 
land is warm, and his loyalty to the Union cnthusia'^tic. But this doe.s not 
prevent his writing like a gentleman, and appreciating the force of truth, even 
in thj case of the South. Dr. Fiske's crj-vlanation of the name "Amoiica," 
given to the contir.eut, instead of "Columbia," does only justice to the great 
na-vigator, Americus Vespucius. But there are so many good features about 
tlie "History," that I cannot spare <.pace to enumerate them. It is much easier 
to give my objections, bocauso they are so few. Probably Dr. Fisko might 
have laid more stress upon the settlement at Jamestown as alTectiug th.' settle- 
ment at IMymouth Rock and the whole English colonization. The failure of 
that great work would probably have handed over the continent to the 
Spaniard. While spoaking of the "riff-raff" imported to Virginia, ho might 
have dwelt upon the similar emigration to New England. It will hardly be 
contended that all the emigrants settling in New England were huly pilgrims. 
Besides, he might have equ;diztd things when stating that very few of tho 
criminal cla?3 were imported into Virginia after 170i>, by adding that for many 
years in recent times the Northern States have been the dumping ground of

not ropresout the Slates ns much ns the Sennte? Then I refer him to Mr. 
Upshur's review of Jiul^^o Story ou thia subject. The Si-iuito takes as m'lch 
pnrt n^i the House in tnxiu;^' the peoi'lc, nud the House is coustituted as mucli 
ou tlic bnsis of the St.ite ns the Scu.Tto. 'J'ho aim of the NortLeru writers liiis

busiucss, "partly uationfil nud pfutly fcdernl," by dwelling upon the diflt-reuce 
in the powers of the govornuunt uiuler the old fjoverumeut aud under tlie 
new. liut suppose there wiis a sitiglc clause iu the Constitution declnriiik' 
"this Union is n IciHguo," would the distribution of the powers as tliey tir-j 
disturb this fundamental fact ? Powers may bo ever so extensive, and yet bo 
fouudcd upon contrn'^t. Again, why is it that Dr. Fiske in his map of succes- 
sive acquisitions of tt-rritory by tlie Liiitod States limits " Texas " to her present 
boundaries, and describes the rest of tho vast territory acquired from Mexico f-.s 
" Mexican Ccs^ion." The United States took Texas witli full knowledge of 
her claim to the Kio Grnudu, and from its hend-wiiter.s to the forty-second 
parallel of north latitude. They afterwards admitted her tii^e by paying her for 
two-thirds of New Mexico. It is true the ifexicaus denied the vpdidity of the 
Texan claim, and assigned the Xi/eces as the southern boundary; and the Free- 
Eoilers adopted the same view for a purpose. But the United States were in 
honor bouijd to do what they could for Tex: s iu the uortoti.Uions with Mexic.>, 
To be loqical, the map should either bo constructed to represent the Texan 
acquisition as bounded by the Xueas, or give the full claim of the Texan Con- 
gress as far north as the for.y-secoud parallel.

Robert Ueverlcy was arrested by Sir Ileiiiy Chicbeley iu May, 
1C82, for CL-mplicity iu the plant cuilin;:^ in Middlesex, and he ap- 
plied for the proper mandate, though the writ was at lir^t denied, on 
the pretext that tlie subject of his coniinement had been transmit- 
ted for the decision of his Majesty, it was sub.sequeutly granted, 
and the said Beverley was produced in court by the shcrirt" of York 
County, on whom the writ had been served, and was bailed iu the 
penalty of X2,000 sterhng.' Beverley's lawyer, William Fitzhugh,

the writ in a civil case pending at nearly the same time, of which

All the pouers of the >vjit ucre exercised bv the justices, -^nLo 
were invostod Mith full coniiuoii law and chancery jurisdiction. 
This might he inftrrcd from the broad laiiguiige of their commis- 
f^ions. The coimaission <L,aaiiic«l by Governor Edmund .Vndrob in 
3G82 to the justices empowered them, jointUj or sci'crallif, "to 
kecpe the ponce fur their couuLy and to keepe or cuuse to be kej't

kept safe in prisson untill they hne such security.'" The commis- 
sion then proceeded to constitute the county coiu-t by assigning any 
four of the justices, whereof one of lour certain justices called the 
Quorum should be one, to meet at the usual place on certain Jays, 
according to law, " to hear and determine all suites cV Controver-

Many in.stnncos occur in the couuty oourls of tlu- iiitorfcrcnce of 
8in^;lo jiu^ticcs to prot(<| the liberty of the iicrson— the iuterfer- 
tiico goiu«T^ to mnkin-,' the party boKliiij fuiotber in restraint to 
{^nve \hm<\ till the next court, or actually to taking the \K.viy re- 
8l rained (jrenerally a servant") out of custody, and remitting him 
to the care of the constable until the next county court. An in- 
tilauce of the former is at biind in the case of Mniy Kawlins, who 
vns nifdtreatcd by ber nia.ster, John Kussell,* and a-skcd tlie pro- 
tection of Governor Berkeley. He addres.sed the following note to 
Major Joseph Crosbaw, one of the justices of York County: 

"Mf\j' Croshaw. Hore hatb been a womau servant \v"' nice who h.ith been 
most uncbristinuly A" cruelly used by bir master one Jn" llusselL 1 desjTC you 
to chU him before you & if bee will not give security for bis better using o' 
bir, then you are to biud bim over to the County Court, wbeu I doubt not but 
the Com" \vill take care that servants sbnll be Cbri>tianly used. 

"Yd"' frtind Sc servant 

"M'vyL'd.V ICGl W.M. Bkukilft." 

iMajor Crosbaw bound Rubsell in the sum of forty pounds ster- 
ling to keep the peace until the next court. At this term the court 
declared the bond forfeited, as Piussell bad broken the bond by 
using "unci^-ill, contemptuous ^: rude language towards Mnj' Jo- 
Bepb Crosbaw to the abuse of all Magistrates \- ^Magistracy,' and 
he -was put under a new bond. But at the com-t ensuing, "John 
liussell, craving the bcneiit of y* Kings most gratious ])ardon & 
hiimbly acknowledging bis faidts &, begging the Courts forgive- 
ness alsoe is discharged from his bond for y' good behaviour Sc 
from y* order of y' last Court." 

It is evident that Spotswood introduced no new writ into Vii-- 
ginia, but merely gave solemn expression to the Queen's endorse- 
ment of the ancient i»ractice. As I do not remember having seen 
bis proclamation in print, I introduce it here from the records of 
York Comity:

Six- AVilliam Thompson is bore spoken of fis liis fallicr's heir, 
and no mention is mudo of bis elder brother, ■who is overlooked 
also by Woolrych in liis aketeh of the earlier Sir William. In the 
Lives of the Heconhrs of London, by Frith, it is stated that Sir 
"William Thompson -was elected to that office on the 31st of ]\Iarch, 
171-1, by th'j casting' \o{q of the Lord Mayor, and was sworn 
the 8lh of April, 1715. lie was made Solicitor-General in 1716; 
calkd to bo Serjeant-at-law on tlie 2Gth of November, 17'J0, having 
accepted tlie office of Coursitor Baron of the ]']xchequor the pre- 
vious August: and in this same year he was raised to the bench 
as a Judicial Baron of the Exchequer Court. He was probably 
kniglited on the accession of George I., and he is called Sir ^Villiam 
Thompson in tho first Parliament of George I., 1715. Sir AVilham 
Thompson was Becorder of the city of Ipswich, Suffolk, from 17fi7 
to the time of his death in 1739. In Parliament he first represent- 
ed Orri)rd, and then Ipswich, retaining his seat there, with only a 
short intei-val in 1710, from 170S until 1720. His namesake, ^Vil- 
liam Thompson, the member from Scarborough, Yorkshire, was 
for a number of years in Parliament contemporaneously with Sir 
^Vi!liam Thompson. And while the latter was a Whig, the other 
^Vilham Thompson was apparently a Tory, as he retained his scat 
in 1710. when so many of the opp:)sito party L-st tluir election. 
Sir AVilliam Thompson was n^turned for Orford in 170S, and for 
Ipswich in 1714, 1722, and 1727. Nobles, in hi.s manuscript ac- 
count of the Becordcrs of London, says that Sir ^Villiam Thomp- 
son's countiy Seat was "O.-terley Park," Heston, ^Middlesex. He 
died at Bath, on the 27th of October. 1739. His tomb is not to

Sir William Thompson's career in Parliament is noticeable in 
its connection vriih the several ttalc trials, or prosecutions by im- 
peachment, v.hicn took placu in the reigns of (Jueen Anne and 
George I. Of these, the most famou.>^, j)erbaps, Avas the impeach- 
ment of Dr. SacheverLlb To^vu^:nd, in his J/cinoirs of Uie /{■nue 
q/ Com)ixon.<, notices the "frequency and futility of impt.achnunts 
during the throe reigns tliat succeeded the revolution." Of tho 
sixteen that were instituted betv.cen lC8f> arid 17'2-1, but fev.- were 
carried to a trid: in tlio case of Dr. Saoheverell the sentence was 
BO light as to seem a mockery: .".nd in two only, adds our authori- 
ty, the trial oi Lord Derwont water and liis brother peers for high 
treason, "and the prosecution of Lord ^Licclei::tield for peculation, 
•was the event worthy of the occasion."' No impeachment has been 
instituted in Parliamtut now for one-half a century, and it seem3 
probable that this formid.ablo weapon of the Commons will be 
allowed to lie idle in tho future. The trial of Dr. Sacheverell took 
place in reln-uary ami March, 17l(\ and William Thompson, who 
had aided in drav.iug up the article^ of impeachment, was entrust- 
ed with tho enforcement of tho third charge. Hemy Sacheverell, 
a fashionable Tory cler:;yman of London, had taken occasion in two 
Bcrmons, one of them preached at St. Paurs on Guy Fawkes' Day, 
1709, to inveigh against the Whig ministry, assertiiig that ' 
church and state were in danger from the party in power. The 
sermons were both printed, and the latter, dedicated to the li'jrd 
Mayor, attracted wide spread interest, and created n.) small excite- 
ment. The Tories praised the bold divine, and the "Whigs as loud- 
ly condemned him. The ministry llually, under the hatlership of 
liord God. .Iphin, resolved ui>on his im[ie:'.chmcnt f-.u* high crimes 
and misdemeanors. It proved to be a suicidal measiu'e for tho

minibtry; and with our modern idcns i)f tlio ficcdoiu of tlie press 
and of the puljiit, such u prosecution would seem uujustiliable 
from any jioiiit of view, liul tliero were j^rent questions of povcrn- 
niont still open and dcui.inding settlement nt this era, and this 
trijd wab the occasion and the excuse for their discussion and solu- 
tion. "^Vhctber the titlo to the crown was founded on hereditary 
rij,'ht or oriiijiDal contract; wlM.-ther the duty of the subject could 
t vcr bo compatible with resistance," was the ])roblem, sa^'s To\\ti3- 
end, which this tiial completely solved; and he adils: "The true 
theoiT concerning the origin of civil government was debated there 
\vith as much fervour as the most momentous dogma in religion, 
and elicited a course of eloquence, both in the attack and defence, 
well Worthy of the gicat occasion." Of this tnal, Burton, in his 
lu'h/n 0/ Qu'.i'/i Anne, says that whoever has patience to read it 
"will, if ho be a student of constitutional history, have reaped for 
liimself a rich harvest of constitutional and historical lore. It is 
such a contribution to this great school of knowledge a.s no one 
man, liowever gifted, could liave contributed. It is of an infinite 
variety. The great orator and statesman gives forth hi.s announce- 
ment and vindication of the ancient liberties of England in brilli- 
ant and imjiabsioned oratory, and the great sage c>f j'recedent ex- 
tracts pregnant matter out of the depths of his learning and wis- 
dom All passed before an audience far too fastidious to 

tolerate ^ither turgid declamation or solemn pottering in trilles. 
Though thus made up of many and various parts, there is a com- 
pleteness of harmony throughout that disqualities one isolated 
passage from duly expressing the spirit of the whole." Of this 
distinguished ai'ray of legal talent, the young baiTister and mem- 
ber for Or ford, AVilham Thompson, formed a part. Pritminent 
among the managei-s of the impeachment may be named Sir Jo- 
seph Jekyll, Sir Peter King, AYalpole, Lechmere. and I'arkcr. 
Lord Chief-Justice Holt died during the trial, and Sir Thomas 
Parker filkd his place. To him, afterwards the erring F.arl of 
Macclesfield, '•thepahnof eloquence and argument was awarded 
by general assent,"' says Townsend. The great lawyers, Sir Simon 
Harcourt and Mr. Phipps, were the most notable nami-s on the 
opposite side; and their advocacy of the accused and their defence 
of his i>osilion as a good churchman and a loy;il subject were ably 
sustained, ^\'hen the articles of ijupeachmeut, which were four in 
number, were ».ba\\u up, Mr. llaiky i\ishcd to leave out the word 
"seditious," but he was overruled by !Mr. Thompson and others.

Tlio coniinillcf who had tlrawn up the articles were ordered by 
the Coimiioiis to he the iiiau.t;,'t rs and to make j^'ood the iiupeaeh- 
ment. Aft»r a fonuidable i)reauible, the article char^^ed: first, 
that ])r. Sachcvorell had sujjf-re.stfd that the means which brou^djt 
about the late lievolution wtiv unjustidable; secoiitllv, he had 
maintaint'd "that the toleration i,nanted by law is unreasonable, 
and the allowance of it unwarrantable"; thirdly, he had sujf- 
gested and ass.Mted "that the Church of Kngland is in f,'rcat jaril 
and adversity under lier ^lajcsty's adiniMi.-,tratiou "; f.jurthlv, 
he liad suj?-:t.-ted "that her Majesty's administration, both iu ec- 
clesiastical and civil atVairs, tends to the destiuctiun of tho consti- 
tution," etc.; and that he "char^^cs the government with a general 
mal-adininistralion." ^Ir. Thompson was the lirst to speak in sup- 
]K)vt of the third article, on the tliird day of the trial, and he spoke 
again on the tenth day, in "reply to such answei-s as had been of- 
fered to this article." That he acquitted him-,elf to the satisfaction 
of his party is attested by the fact that he was engaged as junior 
counsel in tlic proceedings against the rioters wlxich took place at 
Old Bailey in the following April. "When the long and singular 
trial came to a close, the verdict against Dr. Sacheverell susperid- 
cd him from his cilice for three years, and condemned his two ser- 
mons to be burnt at the Koyal Exchange. But be was now the 
]->opiiIar hero. His friends were found in all ranks. Fine ladies 
had his portrait painted on their fans and handkerchiefs. Fash- 
ionable peoiJe named their cliildren after him, and invited him to 
christen them; and mobs of the lower classes paraded the streets 
with the party cry, "High Church and Snchevereli:" j;he rever- 
end doctor seems to have been scarcely worthy of this enthusiasm; 
but its existence testified to the attacliiuent that the nation felt for 
the Church of England, which, ia the opinion of the Tory majoriiv, 
liad sufTercd tlu-ough him. 

^Yith the two sermons of Dr. SachevercU tho House of L-jrds 
condemned to be burned "tho judgment and decree of the Univer- 
sity of Oxford, lGb3." This judgment condemned certain proposi- 
tions, of whi.'h the tirst was that "All civil authority is derived 
from tlic people." This, to us, self-evident axiom, abjuixd by Ox- 
ford in ICS:), and reasserted, by implication, in the action of the 
Parhament of 1710, with sevend others of a like character, recalls 
the articles of the A'irginia Bill of liights. George ^lasou. its au- 
thor, it is not unlikely, would be familiar with this paper and v.-iih 
the proceedings of an impeachment, in which "constitutional and

The Pailinnicnt of 17J0 cnuio t<i :in untinuly cinl ^sith its un- 
j>o]iular action in the iiui)u!iehnient of the hi<.rli cluavh cler<,'yninn, 
i\nd at the next ^■^eueral ehctiun there were but four of the man. 
agfci's of the trial who were returned to their seats. Williani 
'J'honipson contested his seat with a Tory opponent, and his petition 
was voted by a Tory house "frivolous, false, and ve\atit»us," and he 
was forced to pay the costs incui-red by the successful candidate, 
such was the force of the prejudice that ho bad inspired. In the 
Parliamout of 171i William Thompson was returned to the 
as a member irom Ij)swich. This was the last of (Jueen Anne's 
l^arliaments: and during tliis session, as has been said by To\ms- 
cud, "the ehauces of the Stuart and the Hanover dynasties hung 
equally poised." Lord lJolingl)rolce was at the head of the Jacob- 
ite party, and many others were secretly in correspondence with 
the exiled fatuily. It was at this time that the Schism IliU was 
])asscd, in order to strengthen the Tory ascendency; but C^ueen 
Anne's death just at this cnsis prevented its operation, and tho 
Whigs were once more in full power. In the lirst Parliament of 
George I., 1715, Sir William Thompson's name nppcars in the list 
of members as a representative for Ipswich, ho having been knight- 
ed on the king's accession, apparently. 

In this year took palace the unfortunate Jacobite rebellion in 
the interests of the Stuart dynasty. But the nation as a whole was 
in favor of tlie Protestant Succession, and preferred the Gennau 
George, though a foreigner, to their native prince, for the sake of tho 
principles that he repre.sentcd. The cinl war was of short duration, 
and the leaders of the defeated paiiy, the Earl of Derwentwatei- and 
six other peers, were impeached by the Commons for high treason. 
Of these, tliree were tinally respited, and two made their escape from 
the Tower, two only sulleriug the extreme penalty of the law. Ijord 
Nitbsdale, by the aid of his devoted wife, and diessed in woman's 
attire, managed to elude the vigilance of the guards; and Lord 
Wintuuu, making use of his mechanical skill, sawed through the 
bars of his priso7i window. The trial of Lord ^Vintoun took place 
two months after the case of the other nobles had been disj->osed 
of. Sir William Thompson, as one of the prominent Whig lawvers 
in the House, was selected by the Commons to as.-ist iu tho man- 
ng«-ment of the impeachment. The trial was opened by Mr. Hamp-

don ftiid Sir Joscpli Jokvll; aud Sir William Thoinjisou, witli Sir

CowjKr, brullior of I/iril Cowprr, tlio bi<,'li stcwunl, Sir William 
Tboiiij^sou luatlo tilt' closinjr arpfumcnl. spcalciuj,' ut fcuiuc length 
as to the evidences of the ffnilt of the accused. On the becond day 
the counsel for the i»nsoner spoke, aud they ^\fcre answered by 
M'aljiole, Cowiior, and Sir William Tlu;mpson. The triiU lasted 
for three days, from the Jiftcenth to the nineteenth of March, 
171G. Tow-u.^ond, in his J/enmirs of the IJouse oj Cot/unons, in 
his account of this trial, refers to the hardships to which the Kujj- 
lish law at that time condtMiined state piisoiicrs in not ))ermittiug 
them a full defence by their counsel. Lord Wintoun was an ec- 
centric and, it was said, a weak-mindod uobloman. On this occor 
Bion, -whether from policy, or becaii.>?e he was really ujiable to do 
Bo, he refused to state the poiut of law which liis counsel wished 
to make. It was necessary that the prisoner should state it, and 
then the counsel could argxie upju it. Sir Cun.^tantine Fliipi)S, 
one of the prisoner's counsel, \-iolatod the rules by sjjcaking for 
the prisoner; but he was immediately bileuocd. He then asked 
leave to say but tf-n words more of explanation; but Sir William 
Thompson rejoined : " 3Iy lords, we humbly insist upon it that that 
gentleman be not heard one word more." Sir Constautine vras 
then rcprnnanded for presuming " to be so forward as to S})eak 
for the prisoner at the bar before a poiut of law was first stated." 
And again, when another one of Lord Wintoun's counsel alluded 
to his client's condition of mind, he was stopped, as "going into a 
matter of fact," wheri he only had leave to speak to the point of 
law, which was stated. Lord Wintouu, who was cleverer, per- 
haps, than he scorned, was the last of the famous Scton family, 
distinguished for generations iu Scottish history, aud associated 
with the Stuai-t sovereigns, to whom they had many times proved 
their loyally; and it is not surprising th:it a Seton should be found 
in arms iu support of the luckless Pretender of 1715. Lurd Win- 
toun ended his romantic and chequered life iu Rome in 17-10. 

Anotlier state prisoner at this tiiue, who had been committed to 
the Tower before the outbreak of the civil war, was the brilliant 
and accomplished Larl of O.xford. As liobert llarky he had been 
three times Speaker of the House of Commons, where, as Towns- 
end says, he w:is "stabbed into popularity" by the pen-knife of 
Guiscard. As Secretary of State and Treasurt-i-. Lord O.\ford had 
incurred odium for ccrt:un jmbUc measures, notably for the pro-

nrticks of iiDj.cacliiuent cliar^jtd liiiu witli ti'oason as well as with 
liiy;h crinicH aud luisdciiKaiiors. ]5nt tlu^ fi-clin^' aj,' liiin had 
in a peat measure subsided, and the Il(»uso of Lords sinipflit for 
au r-xcuse to release him. In the Coniiiions, Nicholas Lechmcre 
aud Sir ^Vil!iam Thompsiui urged the prusfciition. The procced- 
iu«,'S Nvcro opeucd by Mr. llamj)den, and Sir Josejih Jckvll was 
about to speak iu advocuoy of the first article, when an adjonrn- 
luent was moved. The LortLs then mgcd that the Commons should 
not proceed to enforce the articles charging high crimes and mi'5- 
denu.-an(.rs until tliey hud disposed of the articles, which were two 
ill nuud»er, charging high treason. The Commons maiutaincd 
that the articles .should be taken up in the order of time, the less 
st-rious charges leading up to the graver ones. On this groiuid of 
dispute the Lords dismissed tlie impeachment. Sir "William 
Thompson, in vindication of the privileges of the Commons, and 
as spokesman for the managers of the impeachment, adilressed 
the peers: 'OFy Lords, the managei-s for the Commons conceive it 
to bo tilt, undoubted right of the Commons to proceed in their own 
method in maintenance of the articles exhibited by them, aud do 
nppreliend that this resolution of your lordships may bo of such 
fatal consequence to the nghts and pri\ileges of all the Commons 
of Great Dritain that they cannot take upon them to i)roceed any 
further without resorting to tlie House of Commons for direction 
therein." The lawyers led the van, as has been said, in advocating 
the liglits aud privileges of the Commons. However, iu this case 
they were not to be successful; and, to mark their resentment of 
this slight put upon them, tliey asked of the ]ving that the Earl 
might be excepted from the act of grace then extended, and their 
request was granted. Lord Oxford, it is said, was saved from trial 
by the fact that he had it in bis jKiwer io implicate the I'uke of 
Marlborough as haAing been in correspondence uith the Pretender. 
This is higlJy probable; and though, had the impeachment pro- 
ceeded, it Would not have been possible to prove any treason, yet 
the ministerial accountability for compromising acts in connection 
with the peace neg jtiaiions would no doubt have been made good, 
to the satisfaction of a people jealous of national honor. 

Lord Oiford, as the frieiul of Swift and of Pope, the i>atron of 
letters, and the founder of the Harleiun Collection in the llritish 
Mu.^eum, is remembered with by all lovers of literature.

In Novornbcr of tliis yiar tho (iii:irr< 1 bilwicu the lung and tho 
Priuco of WaUs came to an open rupture. The ioriutr uislied to 
control the family of the i)rince, and he nslccd the tjpinion of tho 
t^^■clve judge.-, ^YJuther it Ava.s the sovereign's ri-ht t(^ direct the 
edueati.Mi and the marriages of his grandchildren. Ten of tho 
judges pronounced in favor of tlic King's ha\ing the power in both 
cases, and two of tho judges opposed the right of the King to di- 
rect the education of the royal grandchildren, maintaining that 
this vas the father's privilege, but asserting the Khig's nuthority 
in respect to directing their marriages. This ojuuion was given in 

1718, and reference is made to it in tho debates of Pialiaiaent in 

1719, on the bill for strengthening the Protestant interest. The 
bill, passed in the t'»velfth year of Queen Anne, to prevent the 
growth of schism, ngaiust occasional confonnity, was read, and 
Sir AVilliam Thompson si)oke in favor of its repeal. IIo "urged 
that the bill deprived j'Orents of their uatmal right ef edu- 
cating their children as they think proper; to which Mr. Shippen 
answered : " That it was somewhat strange to see so able a lawyer 
ii-.consisteut with liimself. For when the twelve judges were con- 
sulted in a case relating to a great family (tlie Prince of Wales's 
children^, he was of the opinion of ten of them, 'That children 
may be taken from their parents, and educated as the good of tho 
nation rt-quires.' "' To this Sir "William Thompson replied: "That 
as he never was consulted, so had he never declared his thoughts 
in tlie nice case hinted by that gentleman: and therefore he could 
not, with any color of justice, be said to have changed his oinnion; 
but that the member who taxed him with it, and who thereby de- 
clared against the opinion of the ten judges, if he would be con- 
sistent with himself, must now be for tho bill that repeals the 
Schism Act, which restores parents to their natural nghts.'

comparison of the plate of "Warner Lewis with tho emblazoning 
de^i^cribcd by Moncure D. Conway, in his Ji<iro>m, \q., pi». 1 52-171, 
shows that the former has seven shields, the latter thirteen. I 
cannot speak for the authenticity of the latter; bnt I have seen 
and examined the old silver jilate.- Tiie tinctures aio represented, 
but not always correctly. Thus the plate repro-ents — 1. Lewis: 
Ar. a elraj^on's head and neck erased vert. 2. Howell: On. three 
towers trijile towered ar., holding in tiie mouth a reel hand. 3. 
Ar. three chevronels or [liruce-Pryce, as described by Conway his 
Gu. three chevronels ar, a crescent for ililiorencc(]. The represen-

nrg. (argent, silvt^r)— a metal — on or (gold) — a melal. 4. Ar. three 
torteaus. This, after the analogy of the Conway eud)la7:oning, 
stanels for C-ourtenay; but it shoulel be, accoreliiig to J3urke, or 
three torteaus. 5. Ar., in chief a/, three lozenges or, for Tielding.

"Willis, Kicu, Kk-h.uid.s, Fox. — I obtained piTniissiou this sum-

up the chanctl, which hid from sij:;jht some haTidsi>me slabs. Tho 
plal>?, throii;;h tho lilterulity of Dr. Francis T. \\'illis, have now 
been placed where they can be seen. The first is the tombstone 
i«f Mrs. Anno AVillis, who died in 1727, and was wife of Col. Fran- 
cis A\'illis. It bears: Three griflln.s pass, in pale for "SVillis, impal- 
ing a chevron between three crosses botonneo for l^ieh. From an 
C'ld "Wilhs Bible, Colonel Francis Willis married Lady Anne Piich. 
The second stone is that of Amy Fichards, the wife of John llieh- 
ards, minister, and it bears no armorial devices. The third is that 
of IJcv. John Fichurds: A chev. between three lleurs-de-lis. Jlich- 
ards of Fowley, county Kent, ]'^ugland, bears as anns: Sa. a chev. 
bctw. three llcurs-de lis or. The fourth tc^nb is that of Isabella 
Fox, wife of Fev. John Fox, and has the Fox arms: A chcvion be- 
tween three cocks; on a chief a fox courant, — which correspohd^, in 
Burke to Fox of Missenden, County Bucks. The tombstone of Mrs. 
"Willis has a crest which I am not entirely certain about. 

"Wallace. — The toml^stono of Fev. James ^Vallace, at his homo, 
called "Erroll," on the Back Fiver, in Elizabeth City County. Vx.ars 
arms: A hon rampant; crest, an ostrich's head and neck, hokUng in 
its beak a horseshoe. As his tomb states, Mr. "Wallace was from 
En-oll, in Perthshii-e, North Britain, and he was minister of Eiiza- 
beth City county for twenty-one years. He died Novenibcr 3, \. D. 
1712, and in the forty-fifth year of his aire. — The tombstone of Mrs Euphrn Dandridge, lying 
near that of Rev. James Wallace, has arms: A lion's head erased 
between three mascles, corresponding to Dandridge of county 
Worcester, England. Mrs. Dandridge died 22.1 April, 1717. 

F.uisAT. — I have seen a wax real attached to the original will of 
I^r. George Famsay, in Norfi>lk county clerk's ollice: An eagle dis-

Nr.xr after the Colle'.'e, the glory of V/illiamsburg ia Brutou 
Chureh. AVhtD. in 1G3'2, iliddlo riantation (subsequently Wil- 
liamiiburg) was laid out and paled in," a parish of the same name 
was shortly created.' Of the early history of thia parish very little 
is known. When counties were established two years later, tho 
hue of divi.<;ion between Charles Eivor county, Eubsequcntly York, 
and Janies City county appears to have passed through tho centre 
of ^iliddle riantatiou.^ Charles Itiver county, the parent potential 
of many new counties, stretched out indeiinitely to tho north uud 
to tho we?-t. 

At Middle Plantation there was no danger from disease, for the 
Burgeon of the Colony, Dr. John Pott, had given convincing evi- 
dence of its healthfulncss by the purchase of a plantation caded 
Ilarop, just on its borders," and hi^ judgment was to be conGrmed 
iu future years by the unanimous voice of the Legislature.' In 
this favored spot there were no mosquitoes;-^ tho air was "serene 
and temperate," and crystal springs burst from the "dry and 
champrdgn" soil.' But the Indians inhabiting near were a real 
menace. The danger, in fact, of sudden death from this source 
made religion a constant factor in the lives of the early Ci)lon;.sts; 
and the vakT and the intrepidity of the brave comraandt-rs at iMiMle 
Plantation, Lieutenant Fuchftr.l Popely" and Captain Ti. bert Ilig-

In 1G7-1 tlie parish of Marston was joined to that of Middlctuwu,

Of Bruton parish, ](ov. lloA-Jaud Jones (IG JO-IC'SS), eon of liev. J.>ne8 in Oxfordshire, was tlie first minister, llo was a

"hlr. RoboiL Cobbs, and Mr. James Jiray, were of the vestry; Alex-

1G77, the vestry deteruiined^ "not to repair either the upper or 
the lower churches in tho parish," but that "a new chun-h should 
be built with brick at the Middle Plantation." Th-re were then, 
probably, three wooden structures for worship in tho pa'-i.~>h, cor- 
responding to I^Iiddle Plantation, Harop, and Marston parishes*, 
all threo of which now composed Bruton, which stretched in an

The vtstry controlled tho church, and out of their number wore 
elected each year two persons called church-wanlens, who saw to 
tho enforcement of tho church laws. These church wardens, who 
wer^ assisted in their duties by tui officer called a sidesman, looked 
after the poor children, who were taught reading, writing, and 
arithmetic,' and reported to the county courts the evil doers, who, 
contrary to Bishop ^leade's suppositious, were prom})tly punished, 
as tho county records show. 

In the cour.^e of the vestry itself rer/arding tho election of min- 
isters, the independent character of the Virginians was remark- 
ably illustrated. Under the practice iu England the minister held 
his living for life, but the vestry of Brutou would only elect Kev. 
Solomon Whoatley for a year at a time, iu spite of the insistence of 
Governor Andros to the contrary.' Even Governor Spotswood ap- 
pears to have found them an obdurate and unmanageable set of 
men. 3 

' The vestry Imd clip.rge (often in conjunction with the ju:-tices) of the par- 
ish schools, of which there seoins to have been four in IIIL— Perry. One of 
these waii the "iFattey School," fonmkil by Mrs. Mnry Wh.ilcy in honor of 
her 6i:in, in ITOC. Probably the other schools were iudicnted — 1. Bv the school- 
houc of which I have fotiud frequent mention in the York records as loc.ited 
on the north side of Queen's Creek, uenr Marston church ; 2. I-y the fiftv acres 
and house given at Jamestown for a free-school {Meade I., 201) ; and 3. By the 
school of .V. Curtis named on the map of Williamsburg. In 172G Jonathan 
DruUt left his estate for a free-school, but the act of the Legi.slature in 17";2 
permitted tho Tc>try to nso the proceeds for any ch.iruablo purpose. — York

BiuTON C'ni'Kcii. ]7o 

Tho vestry, liowever, rested with ftBsortin;^ their own iiiilcpon- 
dcuce. They hvA no patience with the (Quakers, who claimed r\- 
oniption from thrir reh'gious dDDiination. The (.Uudcera were pcr- 
Bocuted. impiii:C)!\<.d, and fined. And yet there is i>)enty of evidence 
that the people iit largo had no {a-eat antipathy to this claps of peo- 
ple. From some of tho very first citizens tho (Quakers received coun- 
tenance and ]n-otectiou. When in 1 70") the formidable Quaker mis- 
eiouary, Thomas Story, visited the homes of Kdward Thomas ard 
John and Janus B:ilo3, " a wanton c.<mpany " of both sexes from "Wil- 
liamsburg and other adjacent places utteTided iho (Quaker meetiii,'^ 
at Queen's Creek, but were actuated by no feeling other than that 
of a thoughtlef^g '"levity." And Governor Francis Nicholson him- 
uelf received Stoiy when he called upon him "with a kindness be- 
yond expectation." ' 

Of course tho c.stabli:^hmeut of tho college at tlio ^liddlo Plan- 
tation, " Old fleilds," in 1C03, and the removal thitlicr of the capi- 
tal in 3C09, had great effect upon tho church.. Wo notice in the 
records frequent mention of repairs, and it becomes evident that 
the ideoi* of the vestry had outgrown the limits of tho modest 
church first erected. In 1710, tho voslry, consisting of "Hen: 
Tyler,* Kich' Kendall, Eich^ Bland,-^ ffred Jones." Hugh Norvcll,* 
W". Tirason,« Amb' Cobbs, E. Jenings,^ and David Bray," ' com- 
pla'ncd in a petition to tho Burgesses that tho present church bad 
gl•o^\^l " ruinous," and asked pecuniary aid to build a new church

General Assembly, tho courts, tho councils, and other public 
agencies. As the petition received tho active support of the speaker

•' provided Bome of y'" \estry Avould uudertal:e the oilier pr.rts." The 
length of the new church ^v;^f^ 7.3 feet, of which the Governor a-n-eed 
to put up 22 leet at his own expense. Its width waw made 2S feet. 
'J'ho church wall was 23 feet high. Tho General Assendjly con- 
tributed two wings, 19 feet long by 22 feet wide, making the 
church aluio.!>t an even cro;-s. 

The church was tinished about 171.'. It was a new church, and 
on Koveiuber IG, 171G, an oriler was made by the vestry that "the 
church-wardens dispose of all the material belonging to the old 
church, except the brick." If the old brijk had been used in con- 
structuig the new church, this exception would have been super- 
jluous; besides Spotswood had agreed to furnish all the biick 
"necessary in building tho church." It wiis in fact cheaper ij 
use new biick than to bother with the old, cemented in almost a 
solid mass by strong shell lime. 

In ]71G John Custis obtained leave to place upon the north 
wall of the church, where it still is, the marble slab to the memoiy 
of the graudlaiher of his wife,- the lion. Dan Parke, Secretary of 
State, which slab was in tho old church. And when, in 1720, Dr. 
AVilliam Cocke,' who was also Secretary of State, died, a tablet was 
placed opposite on the south wdl to his memory. 

Under tho orders of the vestry the men sat on the north siMe of 
the church and the women on the south. Tho youth of the collerre 
were given the gallery "from the pillar on the south side of the 
isle of the church to the uorih side of the church," and in 1721 a 
gallerv- for the parish boys was ordered to bo built on the south 
side of the church adjoining the gallery of the students in the west 
end. In 17G2 Utujamin Waller and others were permitted tj erect

The present brick wall enclosing tho graveyard was built })y 
Samuel Sj)urr, of Williamaburg, in 1752, and cost i.':^20. It will 
bo ronieiubored that John Page gave " llO feol of land every woy" 
for tho church. But tho act providing for laying out ^VilHaluH- 
burg provided also for condemning land fcr tho church, and tho 
jnup of the town in tho college library shov.B that tho churcliyard 
was BO enlarged as to tnko in two acres on Duko of Gloucester 
street. Around three-fourths of this tho brick wall was built, and 
its front is, on measurement, 330 feet. The other portion unen- 
closed was Sold not many years ego to private land owners. 

In 1141 the vestry* had suggested to tho General Assembly the 
purchase of an organ as something "both ornamental and use- 
ful."' After ei^at years' delay, John Blair, Philip Ludwell, Armi- 
f lead Bmwel', James Power, and Benjamin Powell were appoint- 
ed by the Assembly a committee to provido material for ejilurging 
the church, and for purchasing and setting up an organ in tho 
loft, to cost .i200.- New repairs and a new steeple^ were ordered 
by the vestry in 17G9, and it seems that by virtue of these orders 
the cb.urch assumed its present proportions of 100 ft-et long and 
28 feet wide, the wiiigs being reduced from 19 feet in length to 
14 \ feet. In 1755, Peter Pelham, son of tho early New England 
artist of tho rame name, was elected organist. He was clerk of a 
committee of the Hjuse of Burgesses, also; and his sod, Colonel 
Charles Pelham, was an oflicer in tho Kevolutiou. Genend Jithn 
I'elham, of the Confederate army, was a descendant. This organ 
is believed to have been tho tirst church organ in the United 
States, just as the theatre in "Williamsburg, erected in 171(1, was 
the iirst theatre, and tho asylum for the insane, erected in 1703, 
was the tirst asylum. 

The btll that swings from the steeple of the church, and which 
has rung out the yeais for more than a century and a quarter, has 
engraved upon it: " Che gift of James Tarpley* to Bruton Piiri3h,

ieuiovod — (hero vere live in l&oS. Tho organ was removed to a 
loft in tho east end opjiosite the i)refient pulpit.' This is the pro- 
Bont appearance of the church, except for the addition of some tab- 
lets' on tho walls, and a beaulifiil memoriid wimlow recently erect- 
ed by some of the descendai:ts of Colouol Joliu Page. Despite 
the alterations, ^^hi^■h we mu>t regret, the church presents a very 
beautiful interior. 

During tho war between tho States, Bruton parish churcli, to-

td to certain high-strunq sentences and "curls" in the speech, and told the 
futnre Presidt-ut of tho United States that he would take his position at the 
end of the church, where he mi.;ht -sufjge^t to him by sipis what to leave out 
l"he young spc.°kcr bc^'an his address, but was too stronfjly wedded to his 
"curl-" to give them up, even .-it the «u^gcstion of the venerable prosideat;

cane Tyler continued his remarks iu his own way. The ovation which he re- 
ceived from the audience doubtless eucoura.qed ila lison iu dcclariny that, de- 
spite too ardent an expression, "it was the linest speech ever delivered at tho

by Eon. Mann Pape. The m-oiii building has two large halls (out of each 
hall three good-si7cd rooms may be made), nine passages, fourteen lar;;o room?, 
nine small rooms, basement, an attic, aiid a cupola. It had two wings (now 
ptilkd down), wliicb contained six rooms apiece. They formed the court; and 
the front of the original building and wings was two hi'udred and thirty-two 
feet. The main building is three stories and a bastment. The laruje roomi 
are st least twenty feet si]uare, and the small ou«^e fourteen by goveu.

" Tho tomb?tone of lion. Jlnnn Page is sadly wrecked, but all its parts are 
preserved. It is in form an oblong octagon, and the figures on the sides rep- 
resent an allegory-. The first side represents a cherub weeping, with fist to hid 
eye ard torch reversed, a forget-me-not at hi.^ f ei t. TLc second side, the pall 
loojed with scalloped shells. The third side has a cherub representing im- 
U:Orlality; his left foot is on a skull, left hand holds a chirry branch, his right 
foot on a thigh bone, his right hand points to a lamp with Uame, a forget-me- 
not at his feet. The fourth side, which is the head of the tomb, a cherub's 
hoad between two wings, underneath a wreath. The fifth side has a cherub, 
with hand raised, holding a serpent which has its t.ail in its mouth — representing 
•eternity — the forget-me-not as in the others. The sixth side has the pall 
aL'ain. The seventh has a cherub, with hamls folded on its breast, and a 
f'^rcet-me-ni t at its feet- rcprest^nting rc-iiguation. And the eighth side, 
■which is the foot of the tomb, has the crown ot the saints, and underneath, 
the trumpets of the arcliangcls crossed, surrounded by a wreath of cherry

I do not write this to complain of y" hard Bargains, for I shall care to sell you y* balance in such goods as you direct me to

you such servants as you want, that being a thing not ])raclicab!o

by Col. Xathauiel BurwcUs widow to their {,Taudsou Nathnnitl Bur.veli of 
"Carter's Hall," when a very small boy. After bis death it became the pro-

find the bri;^'aue and tike bis place with tho rfci^ament. .A.ftcr trying for some 
tiruo to find the regiment and failing, he found a regiment about to 
make a charge anvi went in with them, and received tho wonnd from wbii^b be 
died, I think, the m-it d.iy. I was present nt tho battle of Cold Harbor, or 
Gaines' Mill, as we called it, June 27, 1>!G2. We were ordered to charf'o a, 
battery of Galling guns, and in order to make it we had to go through a swamp 
almobt waist deep. After getting through the swamp, the regiment wa.s, of 
course, very much out of line. Nat, who waa sergeant-major, was busy get- 
ting the men up in lino, and urging them to give a good acconat of tbcmsclveP. ' 
When the regiment was all up and in lino, he saluted Col. Bolts and turned 
the regiment over to him. .\.s ho did so Bolts said: ' Como here, Burwell; you 
arc a gallant fellow. Give me your hnud.' Nat. touched his cap, shook hands 
with Bolt?, auil crying. Forward men ! we all gave a yell, nnd dashing forward 
took the battery. "

'Diislittlo volume *' aims only tlirous^-h local gossip aud homely dctnils of 
life and cui^tonis to open a side door tlirouj,'h which to gnin a sense of fircsi<le 
intimncy with the Colonial CavnlUr." Mrs. Goodwiu says, "she is not of his 
kin," nud h^^r critici'^tn p.ppi>ars to nmouut to the opinion thnt "ho was 
naughty, but he was nice." The book is written in a charminp i^tyle. It is 
strange that Mrs. Goodwin does not quote the opinion of Alexander Spot3- 
wood, who, us soldier with ^larlborouqh, hs'.d seen all m.-inner of people, wid 
yet said that ho observed in the colauy " less swearing, le?s profanencsi, 
less druiikenntss and debiuichory, less unchnritnble feuds and nniiuosiiics, and 
less knavery aud villuny, than in any purt of the world where my lot htus 
been." The opinion of such a stntosmnu is more than gossip, 'flie " d.ime " 
of Gov. Nicholson is not unkuowu. as ilrs. Goodwin suggests. That lady was 
undoubtedly Murtha Unrwell, who married ITenry Armistead. (Qt* aiiti klt,

This work does credit to Mr. Zieher and to rhibdelphia. It is designed 
to meet a want long felt in Amrrica for a popular work upon heraldry. The 
writer has endeavored to group in a coucise and intelligent manner all that is 
ncces-,ary to enable the student correctly to interpret aud apply the manifuIJ 
laws of the gentle science of arms. In this respect the book is largely a com- 
pilation, as are all modern books upon the subject. It contains in addition a 
collection of material, g.ithered from the use of royal and other seals Jip^in 
colonial documents r.ud individual coat-.-'.rmor, upon old tombstones, hatch- 
ments, tabletd, f.imily plate, wills, deeds, etc. Virginia finds hand;some rt'pre- 
sentation in m:iuy ways. I notice among tombstones (p. -19) one of Majoi 
John Howell, of Southampton, Long Isl.and, deceased 1C96, bearing the same 
arms as the Howells of Virginia. As little is known, outside of tradition, re-, 
garding thi-< family here, it might bo well to search the Long Island record* 
regarding Major John Howell.

I'lace amoup the biographits of tlic country. It is fnll of iiiformntiou rc.'^urd- 
ing the politics of the country, and rcpirdiui: nicu and thinfjs. Whitticr's 
opposition to slavery arose from the deep persuasion of the faith to which ho 
belongod. lie ropurdcd the holdin;: of =lrives as a fin, for which in some 
)ne:i.suro all were responsible while the Union continued. When, therefore, 
South Carolina seceded, ^Vhittier was opposed to coercion. In every asj)cc-t 
of the case in whii^h the nmtter can be viewed, the was a plain war of 
conquest. As the work of Mr. Picknrd eIiowp, no two iJidcpondont nations 
were ever more forei;::;n in fccliiif;, in inititiitious. in thotishtrt»th.'\n the North 
and the South. No country of Europe ever brouf,'ht into tlic field larger 
armies or possessed a tcnitory more a unit in interests than the South; not 
only the theory of the Union whicli was formed on cou<^er.t was opposed to the 
war, but r>as<.>/: and rottun. And th'>y opposed the war because a restoration 
affected with slavtry wa>-- only to confirm the distinctions of the two sections, 
and ft restoration without sl.wcry was a conquest. If the last was to bo tlie 
chnractT of the conttst, then the country was committed to a continual war- 
fare with all nations whose institutions were impure and immoral from it." 
Htnndpoint of conviction. ^Ir. Pickard writes in good temper and spirit 
throughout, and I cordially recommend his work to general perusal among 
Southern readers.

The question of tJie currency is a leading question m the politics of the 
dey. Tho ni;t,!ior claims that what is needed is free met.ilism, not free silver 
or freo gold. He states that money is a mere implement of exchange, 
and asks, if the people of a section wish silver, why should tboy not have it ? 
If they v.ish iron, why not ? The whole system of standard value, is false. 
The only use of the mint is to make coins, attest their genuineness, and certify 
to their weight. This Js nature, and nature is always right. Let people have 
the right to coin whatever they can dispose of.

Tlie title of the above is so fully descriptive of its contents, and tbe pub-

scholars and antiquaries, that comment seems unnecessary. It is a moFt h;indy 
and useful pamphlet, and should be in the hands of every one living iu Vir-

with the history of hi.s c.apitol, and the pamphlet will be exceedingly conve- 
nient to visitors. I notice one error in running over the pages. The portrait 
of John Tyler, Sr, is not an original, but a copy of tho original made by Mr^.

In the pcssicn of 1722. in the tlcbato on a m(»tion for raiHlnj^ a 
hundred thou^niul jjomuls on th.o IJomau Catb(..lio3 towards Iho 
supply of the current jrar, Sir AViUiam Thompson spoke in favor 
of the measure. The supply was to he raised to reimbuno Iho 
public for the great expenses occasioned by " the late rebellions 
aiid disorders."' It was opposed as an extraordinary tax, carrying 
the face of persecution, which was inconsistent \\ith the privileges 
of the Protestant religion. In rtj»ly to Lord Gage and I\lr. Ons- 
low, Sir AVilliam Thompson defined "the notion in his opinion uf 
persecution, which was only when any one is punishcil for his par- 
ticular opinion in religion, and for serving God according to that 
opinion and the dictate-s of conscience.' But ho added, ''That w:ts 
not the case hero, for the extraordinary tax, now intended to be 
raised upon the I\ipis*s, was nut a puLiishmcDt for their leirg 
Komau Catholics, but on account of penalties they had at divers 
times incurred for being enemies to the civil govern ment, raising 
rebellions and contriving plots agairst the State." 

The impeachment of the Earl of ITaccle-stitld took place in the 
Parliament of 172.1. Of the twenty-ono articles the tirst ten 
charged the accused with specific acts of corruption in extorting 
large suras from several of the masters in chancery as the price of 
their admission. The eleventh and twelfth articles charged him 
with admitting unworthy persons as masters. The next seven 
articles charj^'cd Lcml ^lacck-sfield with various artitices for evad- 
ing the discovery of his defalcatior.s. The twentieth article charge^l 
him with borrowing money uf tlio masters that belonged to the

pnitors; nnd tlio concliulii';^ r.rticlo uiado r. ppcrific chnrp^o of cor- 
ruption in Ihe nmnn^cmont of tlie estntts of an infunt licir. 

Sir "\\'illiain Tliompron, na one of tbo uiaunj^ers, was to assist iu 
maintnininfT tbo liftccnlli, bixtcriith, and Hcveulcentli arli^.les, but 
he conluiccl bimsclf to tbf; considcratiou of tlio bcvcntt-fntb, as tbe 
otbers liad been fullj ilifcursecl by tboso vho Bjjolie before biai. 
Ho cniichulod lii.s argument iu tbcso ^vords: "The commons are 
tensiblo tbat he, ubo bus eo Ion;,' been a strrnpjcr to justic*-, \\ill at 
last meet ^^itb it bero; and tbat your lordsbips' provident itd \\is- 
dom ^vill never sulVor such reproacbes to be cast upon tbis, as Jiavo 
been tbrov.-n out upon another juition, 'that a judge is an even- 
ing' volf; tbat justi(.'e standoth afar oil', find equity caunot enter.'" 

Sir William Tbompsou \vas appointed also to inspect and r-^amino 
the papers of tbe sovcval masters to determine their dclJciencics. 
Tbo trifd took place at the bar of the House of T/ords, and not iu 
"Westminster Hall as was usually the case. There were nineteen 
managers iu all, and the trial lasted ten days. ?»Iauy coriou.s reve- 
lations were made by the masters of the way iu which they had 
obtained their places, and the Earl was found guilty and fined 
thirty thousand pounds. As Sii" Thomas Parker, ho had been con- 
spicuous iu the Sacueverell trial, and ho had presided at the trial 
of Daniel Dammarrco at the Old JSailey, for high treason iu puliicg 
do^\u met"'tiiig-hou.se9. 

This trial with that of Francis "Willis and George Purchase, the 
rioters of the Sacheverell parly, has already been referred to as one 
in which Sir William Thompson was counsel for the queen. 

Other state trials at the Old Bailey iu which Sir Williaui Thomp- 
son appears, occurred u\ 172G and 1120. Major John Oneby was 
tjied for the murder of William Gower, iu tbo foiiiier year, •' be- 
fore the l^ight Honorable Sir Francis Forbes, Knt, Lord r\Iayor of 
London, 'Mr. Earon Halo, Sir William Thompson, Knt., Recorder 
of Londou and others, his majesty's justices." A verdict of guilty 
was pronounced, and the unfortunate man killed himself in prison 
the right before the day appointed for his execution. 

In 1720 Sir William Thompson was one of the judges presiding 
at the trial of William Hales for forgerj'. There ^^ero several other 
iudictments of the samo character that followed, and there was 
some discussion as to the punishment that should be inilioleJ. 
Hales was found guilty of "obtaining money l>y false tokens," and 
the law did not allow of line in the case, but prescribed ccrpe>ral

" Sir Willlftin TbomjisoD, 'Tho questiun i?, what corjwral puiiioli 
merit? To bo Ruro lio will lio ])illoricd.' 

"Sc-rgeaut ^Vbittakf.•l•, 'Tlio pillory, my lord, is nothing, only to 
look throiif?;li a Mooden cascinout. ^^'o huiably liopo some puuihh- 
meut will be orilcrcd, not only i'^nt^uiinioup, but corporal, as tlie 
words are very extenbivo.' 

"Sir "WilliaLU Tbompson, 'The court, to bo 6uro, will order im- 
prisonment, as wnll as Ibe j^'llory, und security afterward.' 

'•Sergeant \Vhittaker, 'But should not tho punishment left to the 
discretion of the court bo extended to Bomething further?" 

"Sir William Thompson, 'I am not for extending it to torture. 
I know not any precedent, nor v/ould I begin anything of that 
nature. The king himself is limited by our law.' 

"Sergeant ^V]liltrlker, 'The penalty seems left to the discretion 
of the court." 

"Sir "\\'illicim Thompson, 'I would not extend it. I do not know 
but that tlio Parliament may think of something else afLerwtads.' 

"Sergeant Whittaker, '^\'ell, sir, I have Inid it before you. I 
submit it.'" 

The sentence was fine, impiisonment, and the pillory, and Ser- 
geant Whitti-kcr did not cai-ry his point a;7ainst tho humane deci- 
sion of Sir William Thompson. 

In July, 172ft, when most of tho judges were on their circuits, 
the case of Thomas Bambridge, for felony, camo before the court 
of the Old Bailey, and SirAMlliam Thompson said: "As 1 have the 
honor to be a member of the House of Commons, and as this prose- 
cution was ordered by address from the House, it may be objected 
by the prisoner that I am both prosecutor and judge.' The pris- 
oner did object, but it was urged that there was no other judge to 
preside, and the Lord Mayor was too much engaged to appear. 
Sir William Thompson professed his willingness to waive the objec- 
tion on his part for the couvcnienco of the court, as it wa;5 feared 
that some of tho witnesses might bo out of the way if the cisu was 
deferred, and ho assured the prisoner that ho should have "all the 
indulgence the law will allow." But Bambridge 6till demurred, 
and tho court was adjourned, in expectation that some of the 
absent judges would come to town. Meeting again a week later 
there was still the game diOiculty. Some of the judges had re- 
turned from their circuits, but were too tired to take up the case. 
Bambridge saiil he had no personal objection to Sir William Thomp- 
son, on the cjutrary he h.\d "long had a regard fur him," but he

objection ill inv miiul, and tlio more I think of it the more iiu|no])er 
it Httius to nic. I )al0^v no iuBliinco, no |nirnllcl. " ^Vhcu tho at- 
torney {^oncrul dechircd that ho was forcctl to l>u out of town at tho 
next Kission, in A\igust, Sir ^Villiiua rc-]vlird that ho wi.-hcd it was 
otlierwiso: " If you can tell nio of any caso whcro a judge acted as 
I>ro8CCutor and judj.^c I vrill try him." To this the attorney trenoral 
refi])ondt d, ''I can't recollect, any precedent," but ho cited tho Clourt 
of King'»5 lunch, prantin;,' the infunuation au.l tryiufr the cause. To 
thin Sir ^Villiam answered, " After the Gjurt of Kinf,''8 IJench grants 
iuforuiution, thoy hoar Loth ]>arties. AVhoever reads the act passed 
last Bcssion, if I hud tried him, would say I was not impartial." 
And ho concluded, "Tho trial must go over, it muBt take it.s fate." 
Sir AVilliam Thompson was Kocordor of London from 1714 to 
tho timo of his death in 1739, sometimes acting in his own person 
and sometimes through his deputies, Sergeants Kaby and Urling. 
The city government of London consists of mayor, aldermen, and 
common council with tho recorder. The latter must be "a grave 
and learned lawyer, ekilful in the customs of the city, chief af^.si6lant 
to tho lord mayors, for their better direction iu matters of justice 
and la^Y. Ho takes place in councils and iu courts before any men 
that hath not been mayor, and learnedly delivers the sentence cf 
tho whole court." The criminal jurisdiction of the city includes 
tho Loudon Sessions, bold generally eight times a ye;ir, with the 
recorder as the acting judge, for the trial of felonies, i\:c. 

On the accession of George I. and his public entry into London, 
the now Recorder, Sir ^Vilham Thompson, made a speech cf wel- 
come in tho name of the lord mayor, aldermen, sheritlV, and other 
olUcers of the city. As a good ^^'hig the Kceorder's professions of 
loyalty were no doubt genuine and hearty. A few yeare later he 
was the spokesman of the city again, corgratulaling tho king on 
the birth of s prince, and the king returned his thanks. Then iu 
17-.5, George I., returning from a vitit to his beloved Hanover, re- 
ceived the dutiful speech of tho l\ecorder felicitating him on his 
safe arrival. Tho treaty between Spain and the Emperor of Ger- 
many, which was thought to be injurious to Great Britain, gave 
occasion for an address from the citizens of London, which was de- 
livered by the Recorder. 

On the 11th of June, 1727, George II. ascended the throne, anil 
London wa? again called on fur a welcome to the sovereign. *'Hi^

vbeu tbcir inajcsfios cajno to the city on Lord IMjivur's Day, Sir 
AA'illiiuu Tbompson. in bis oOico as Keconk-r, is tlie oiator in behalf 
of tbo citizens. Tbe account of tbcii- Uritisb royalties* movc-ments 
as ect down in tlio city's chronicle, with tbo duo ol'sorvunce of 
Bpeecb-making by tbo Itcc.ordcr, is vaiiod by tbe ai rival of six 
Indian kings in IT'JS or 1720 "of the Cborolceo nation, bordcriujj 
upon Soutb Cfiruliuft," to wbom, doubtless, tbo city government 
extended jn-opor cjurlesies. There was a beatcd contest at tbo 
election of a lord mayor, September 2'.\ 1720. A convention bo- 
tween Great IJritaiu and Spain bad been brought about, whicb 
was tbougbt by many to bo ii-juiious to the former in ber trade 
and commerce, and Sir George Champion, tbe alderman next tbo 
cbaic, was rejected by tbo citizens for buving yielded to ministerial 
inllucnce, tbe minister, it was charged, being in collusion wilb tbo 
King of Spain. "A greater number of Uveryt^en," Eays tbo 
Chronicle, "'appeared that day at Guildbpll tb>in was ever known 
ou tbe like occasion, cud between one and two o'clock the Kigbt 
Houc)rablo Micsjab Perry, Esq., Lord Mayor, opoucd tbo court, 
Avben Sii- AViUiam Tbompson, Knt., Piecorder ( f tbe city, in a 
Bpcccb to tbe Commcru Hall, told tbo citizens, ' That it was their 
undoubted right to return to tbo Court of Aldermen two lit and 
P.blo persons of tbut court wbo bad served tbe cfilco of sberill'. out 
of wbom they -wrrc to choose ono of tbcm to bo Lord Mayor for 
tbe year ensuing, and tbat bo would not take upon him to dictate 
to them in tbcir present cboice, well knowing their prudence would 
direct tbeui to act in tbo best manner for tbo good peace and wel- 
fare of this great cily.'" 

Tbo Kecorder read tbo Lord Mayor's address ou tbe marriage 
of tbe Prince of Wales iu lT3«i, and be made tbe speecb on tbo 
occasion of tbe proscntation to ihe prince of tbe freedom of tbe 
city, when tbe l.\tter "'was admitted of the company of tbe &a<llfcrs, 
in tbe time of tbo liigbt Honorable Sir John Tbompson, Kcigbt, 
Lord Mayor." 

Sir "NVilliam Tbompson was made solicitor-gtneral in February, 
1717. And it is iu connection witb bis tenure of this oCice, wbicb 
he held fur tbrte years only, that the siuglo apparently censurable

acfiou rLCordeil of biin is to be found. This consisted in profer- 
ing n r.Lfirgo of coirui)li-jn aguinbt Iuh coll»-nj»ue, Atloiucy fjenersd 
Lt'cLnieJO, waich lifter iuvesti^'atiou vna disnuBsed iis without 
fuuudatiun. Ibc lawcfllccrs of the crown at tbia time, s;iyB Tuwmh- 
end in bis nccuuut of tbo aflair, received a largo part of tbeir 
roveuuts from the fctn upon tbo patents cf iucurpcirjitinn of Ibo 
joint-btoc-k companies tlien overrunning tlio country, hiir M illiam 
Thompson, in tbo cumtuiLtce which sat tolu-iu- the evidence against 
Lcchmere, "cnlkd an bis principal witnessos tbo aitornoya for tbo 
mines and batter\' coinj-anieif, who proved that they wanted a 
charter of insurance, and bad nine attendances before the attorney- 
general, with an arjay of six counsel on their side and three or 
four on that of their opponents, and kept up tbo discu.ssiuu at bi.s 
chambers from six till ion at night." 

The foe oiiorcd was sixty guineas, and tbo witnesses ])rovcd that 
they gave fifty guineas; but these sums, though large as ft-cs, were 
considered by the counnittco as to small to constitute bribes. 
The second charge against Lechmtre, that bo permitted "public 
buildings for charters at his chambers as at an auction," was not 
Bubstanliated either by the evidence; and as furnishing a motive 
for the charges of tbo soliciior-geueral, it was said tliat while tbo 
references of the companies " were sometimes ordered to be made 
to the attorney and solicitor jointly, these had been in the propor- 
tion of five to one at least to the attorney-general." 

It is dillicult to believe that Sir ^Vil]iaul Thompson would have 
brought the matter into such publicity if be had not thought that 
he could prove bis case; and surely professional courtesy did not 
require bim, as Towusend seems to think, to maintain silence if he 
believed Sir' Nicholas Leclnnere guilty. Though condeumod at tbo. 
time for Hbol, and dismi.ssed from his otlicc, Sir William Thoaip 
son muit have recovered the good opinion of his judges who felt, 
perhajis, that he bad been too severely dealt with. In 1721 he 
received the grant of an annuity of twelve hundred pounds and a 
patent of pre( edence in aU courts after tbo attorney and solicitor- 

And it will bo remembered that all this time he remained i»o- 
corder of London, and retained the confidence of his constituents 
in Ipswich, where be was also the Kecorder of the city. And says 
Fos8, "'In November, 17"20, he was atlvanced by a very unusual 
step from the executive ollice of Cursitor Baron of the Extbeijuor 
to that of a Judicial Baron, having been on the previous day made

Sir ^VillialU Tbompsou married a widow vitb u larj:;o family, and 
in bis will bo leaves le;?acic8 to all of bis utep-cbildrcu. His wifo, 
Julia, dan^;ht('r of Sir Clirisloiibcr Conytri*, liad married iu IGsl

withv^ut hnrs iu 1T"28. Julia Blackett nir-rricd iu ITOti Sir ^Vulter 
CalvciloY.' Her eldest Kon, Walter, inherited the estates of bis 
undo and took the camo of lilackttt. Julia Cidverloy married Sir 
George Trevelyan, Uait., of Nettlecombe. Elizabeth Blackett 
married \\'illiam Marshall, son of Sir John lilarsLall. 

Frances manicd in 1729 Eiobert, only sou of Charles, Lord 
Bruce, heir to the Earl of Ailesbury. Isabella Blackett married in 
17i:>, after Sir William Thompson's death, Dawd, Earl of Buchau, 
and died chilJless in 17G3. Diana married Sii* William Went- 
worth, Bart., of Bretlon, County York. Anno, the younfrcet child 
cf Lidy Blackett, married lirst, John Trenchard of Abbots Lfij^h, 
County Somerset, and afterwards a lilr. Gordon, and died in 17b3. 
Sir V.'illiam Thompson had no children, and lio left bis sister, 
Sarah Thompson, his residnazy legatee. He gave bis fcister, Mary 
Thompson, five bunired poimds, and ho Bays of bis only married 
tistcr, Dorothy: "I m.\kc tliis observation, that my sister and chil- 
dren have had a great share of my fortune already, and c.umot iu 
reason expect any more." Yet ho leaves a legacy to her and some- 
thing to her four children. He had lost sight of hi^ brother'd 
" family in far-off Virglni;^ " and no mention is made vl them iu his 

Stevens Thompson had been dead (in 1730) for twenty-five years, 
and perhaps his brother in Eogland did not know that be had left 
any heirs. Besides his sisters, and his sister Dorothy's children, 
tho only relative named by Sir William Thompson is his cousin, 
John Thompson, cf the exchequer oOlce, whom be makes bis ex- 
ecutor. Of his step-daughter, Isabella Blackett, Sir William

tbo friend and corresjioudeut of Wasbinj^lou nud otber Amerii-an 
I.atriols. He was related to Lord Fairfax of "Green\Yay Court, " 
in ^'ir{;iuia, and professed at one time a desire to become bis kins- 
inan's "vassal, on tbe l)ank9 of tbo Totoma?." And ou tbo banks 
of tbo Potomac at tbis time lived J'.aron Tbompsuu's distin^iruisbed

P!id Mrs. [Marshall," Frances and Elizabeth Blackett, their step- 
fatlier left "twenty p(niuds eaih for mourning," and tbe same sum 
for moui-nirg was left to "Walter Blackett, Esq., and Mrs. Tre- 
viban, bis sister." Sir William Thompson left bequests to some 
half-dozen servants by name, "and to every other servant living 
with meat my deal h twenty pounds." He gave a bundred pounds 
to bis clerk, and ho a(bls: "I release to the corporation of Ipswich 
all arrears of my salary, which I. take to bo between two ami three 
hundred pounds, as a remembrance of tbe regard shown to me by 
them formerly," 

Ho gives to each of the judges a twenty-shilling ring; to each of 
the aldermen of the cin' of Loudon and tbe three ofScers attending

Dear Sir 

Since you left us it hath pleased God in his auger to deprive mo 
of my dear son John in whom was my chief delight and my greatest 
hopes, he having so fine a Genius y' I vainly thought he v.ould be 
an exceeding great comfort to me in my old age (if I ehould attain 
it) but now he is gone the way of all llesh, I shall endeavour not to 
be fond of any tliiug in this world. Idy sister :\Iuufurd ' is ruined 
th.o estate most of it sold to pay the drunken husband's debts. 
Cor riand- is going to London for priests orders much against my 
wifes \- my will. The rest of us are pretty well c'^ wish you k all 
our relitions at Scarborough perfect health & all other felicities. 
I am, D' Sir, your most aflfect. Cousin '

As to ndmiltiug of tlio ])ecfe('3, it li;is lu'ou tlio uiMutt rrii])tc(l 
U6a;,'0 of llio sevcrdl Courts licro, tlio' \vc have no L;i\v thuL takes 
any notice of it. 

There ■were several E\iileucca sworn nml oiaminctl j.t the trial 
Lore it no Dopositiona taken, so none conld bo ItoturnLd with tlio 
Judgment; anJ even hio own lirothcr Cap' 1. si mm llandulijh had 
been in partnership with him (and is Bincc Dead; was Bwom .'i: 
nnionp; other tilings was examined as to Ijio sale of mv twu last 
Parcels of Tobacco, and declared that tbo' his Brother E. II. sold 
them at a Low jnice, yet if y' purchaser sold thciu again for more, 
y' he y" .^aid E. R. was to have more, and they were actuald sold for 
more iV y' money wa-^ paid to him ; and being over again i)ris.«e<l by E. 
]{. to Declare what li(.;i.sou ho had for saying so he told him and 
the Court that he was sorry, ho was a-^kcd the Qustion, but as ho 
must answer it, he dc dared y' Cap' Thomas D filing (who was pri\y to 
all E. R.'s al3airs) told him so, to which E. Iv. could muke no Ko- 
I»ly; this I Jiientiou as a sample to show you what manner of per- 
son I have to deal with, and that it is impossible the Council should 
have any insight into our Dispute, because my said principal evi- 
dence is dca.1, and the others are here ; and nothing he oftVred to 
give in Evideuc j against me was refused him, but his or^n Oath to 
his own account, wliich if the court luid admitted would have been 
against all Law Jc reason but they admitted y' accomit c'c his 
Docks to be given to the Jury, so that ho had no just Eeason to 
Complain and I hope the verdict will stand unimpeached, and tliat 
the C-ouncil will ])ismis^. the Appeal »V order him to pay mo my ful 
costs both at homo iV here, iho' I have no hopes, if they should 
order it, that I should ever get a pemiy of it. 

The reason I suppose for Cap' Eandolph's presenting the order 
for appeal was (as you observe) to get a Transcript of the Eecord 
under the seal of y' Colony. 

As to the King's granting appeals under the sum limited we 
doubt not his power but it is a very great Plardshii) that we must 
bo put to a ven.' great E.\ pence to Defend appeils for a small summ 
and yet if we get the ]5etter of the appellant, the Council seldom 
give us the 10"^^ of the Costs ct charges we are at, for in this AtTair 
1 have expended hero about thirty pounds and what it may Cost 
me, with you, I know not. 

Our As.sembly is to meet in September and I make no doubt but 
they will ji^n in a proper Eepresontation of this afTaii-. 

When I paid the money to Diehard Diandol^.h (^the appellant's

Uouoiir, I made no doubt but >' ho was E. Jt.'s attorney and thftt 
ho would perform his proniiKO. but since I find ho Intended no 
fciuch tiling;, and the re.iaon why I trusted to Ijis Honour was, be-

You aro very right, that wo ought to I^ely wholly on the Verdict, 
which 1 think they c:int get over without manifest injustice. 

AVhether tho Gov' did give orders to M' Lcheup to fee a Coun- 
cil for me or no I can't tell, but when I return I will ask him ubout 
it, for he told me he would do bo. 

I am trucly scncible of tho great Business y* Council have on their 
hands and doubt this aQViii- of c<urs vvill not be speedily determined,

craft in y followiug words to wit : viz Upon jioru'-al .-f y above order of this 
bou' ■' Hoard 1 doe conceive iV am of the opinion that y' charge or accusation 
ii too general that the county court ought to uuilie a further Examiuacon of 
tlic mutters of fact i; to have proceeded therein pursuant to tlie directions A 
l^owcrs of Conntv Courts given by a late act of A.-^t.mbly in criniinid cr.s:s 
made it provided it if they thought there was sullicitnt cause to have (accord- 
ing to that ]-aw) committed her to y Gcu'' prison of this Colony whereby it 
would have come recjularly before the Gon' Court and whereupon I should 
have prepared a bill for y" Grand jury A: if thoy had found it 1 should have 
prosecuted if. I therefore with hui.-.blo submission ofltr & conceive it proper 
that y s' County Court do make a further Enquiry iuto the matter, and if 
they are of oj>inion there be cause they act nccordiug to the above said Law 
and I shall be reaciy to present ft Hill and if found proceed thereon 

Ordered th;U a copy of y said Heport be sent to y court of I'riuccss Anne 
County for their direction in y" premises." 

The council book has never bean quoted in connection with this subject 
before, and it shows that the pubhshed account of the opinion of the Attorn- y 
General, Stevens Thompson, in the calender of State Papers (vol 1., p. IC'U), Ls 
defective in omitting the word.s in ilulics. After this order, refcrriug tbe 
vhole subject back to the County Court, the proceedings reported in the text 
»ook place.

the practitioner of physic, was r».-quired to eerve hirf tinio an 'an 
apprentice and servant' for seven years, under a physician or in 
tho apothecary's company. Nor could any one practice surgery 
until he h.nd served a Uke apprenticeship in the barbera'-surgeoas'

cupping, leeching, and tho heahng of wounds. Sir Aatley G>opor,

is thua given in Jiretrcr's Dictonary of J'hrase and F^i'-le, p. 409: 

"Tol>iA3 JJobbon was a carrier aiul inn-keepor it Canibridj^e, who 
erected the handtjomo ct>udiut there, and settled 'Kcveu lays' of 
paaturo ground toward its mfiintcnauce. Ho kept a stable of forty 
good c&tUo, always ready and tit fur travelling; but when a man 
came for a horse, ho was led into tho stable where thero was {.aeat 
choice, but was obliged to take tho hoi-so which etcvid nearest to 
the stable dcor; po th:it every customer was alike served, acconling 
to his chauce, and every horso ridden with the same justice."

" Why is the greatest of free communities reluced to ' Hobfrjn's

that tho Spectator mailo its appearance (the initial number) Murch
